Many late Lycian dynastic coins bear legends on both sides that had long been assumed to be the names of two dynasts, who ostensibly issued joint coinages. However, more recent evidence has proved that names such as Wedrei, Zagaba, and Zemuri are actually names of cities, which are probably the mints of the respective issues they appear on (cf. A.G. Keen, Dynastic Lycia: A Political History of the Lycians & Their Relations with Foreign Powers, c. 545-362 BC [Leiden: Brill, 1998], pp. 109 and 154–5).

(BC 390-370) Mithrapata - Stater165 viewsMithrapata, Dynast, ca 390-370 BC. AR Stater (22.5mm, 9.66g). Forepart of lion right / Head of Mithrapata left; MITH­RAP­ATA in Lycian around; all within incuse square. Near EF, double struck on obverse. Apparently unique.

The obverse of Mithrapata’s staters feature either a lion forepart in profile or a facing lion scalp. Previously, all the known coins with the lion forepart obverse were paired with the profile of Mithrapata reverse. Triskeles reverses were only known with obverses with the facing lion scalp. The present coin is the first to feature the profile lion obverse with a triskeles reverse.

Obols and Diobols are well-known from the emission of small coins assigned convincingly to the Carian Satrap Hekatomnos. A. Winzer, Antike Portraitmünzen (2005), No. 13, argues that some portray the Satrap himself, while others Zeus Lepsynos.

(BC 400-350) Uncertain Satrap - Tetartemorion295 viewsEarly-mid 4th cenutry BC. AR Tetartemorion(?) (6mm, 0.21g). Mylasa mint(?). Head of the Persian Great King left / Stellate pattern of Milesian style. Unpublished in the standard references. VF, porous. Extremely rare.

It is unlikely that this coin was part of a Persian-related issue at Miletos. In the early 4th century, however, the Milesian stellate pattern reverse was revived in the fractional coinage of the Hekatomnid satraps of Caria that were struck at Mylasa. These coins used the Milesian weight standard, which is likely the reason for their revival of that particular stellate type. There are a variety of issues from Caria during the Persian period that used Persian iconography, so it is likely that this coin belongs among these issues, and perhaps was struck under the Hekatomnids at Mylasa.

(BC 400-370) Artumpara - Stater408 viewsArtumpara, Dynast, ca 400-370 BC. AR Stater (7.62g, 9h), Telmessos mint. ΤΛ[...], bearded head of Satrap right, wearing Persian tiara / ΑΡΤΟΧΠΑΡΑ, helmeted head of Athena right. Extremely rare, one of only a very few coins of this Dynast known. Good fine. PGB coll., acquired in early 1970s.

Artumpara was a late satrap or dynast of Lycia who was involved in putting down the revolt of Datames; he himself seems to have been defeated by Perikle, who at one point ruled over most of Lycia.

(BC 400-370) Artumpara - Stater175 viewsArttumpara, Dynast, ca 390-­370 BC. AR Stater (21mm, 8.40g, 4h). Xanthos mint(?). Forepart of lion right / Helmeted head of Athena right; diskeles above; all in dotted circle within incuse circle. Good VF, toned, struck with worn obverse die. Very rare.

Although this issue is anepigraphic, the present and Roma coins are struck from the same obverse die as SNG Copenhagen Supp. 457 = SNG von Aulock 4183, which has a reverse that bears Arttumpara’s name. It should be noted - this obverse die appears to have had details re­engraved before striking the present piece.
