CRETE. Apollonia. Circa late 4th century - early 3rd century BC. Stater (Silver, 26 mm, 11.77 g, 6 h). Beardless, youthful male head to right, apparently laureate and, thus, presumably Apollo. Rev. Tripod lebes with tall ring handles; all within a shallow circular incuse. Apparently unpublished, but cf. BMFA Suppl. 107; Le Rider p.33, 238-243 and pl. VIII, 16-20 (but especially p. 33, 238 and pl. VIII, 16); and Svoronos, Numismatique, p. 10, 3 and pl. I, 3 and addenda, Arch. Eph. 1889 p. 360, 4 and pl. 11, 3. For a hemistater struck from the same dies, see Roma 9, 2015, 263. Of great rarity. Nicely toned and of a typically Cretan, rustic style. Extremely fine.
