Lot 49
Estimate: 4500 CHF
KINGS OF THRACE. Lysimachos, 305-281 BC. Tetradrachm (Silver, 29 mm, 17.04 g, 11 h), Smyrna, c. 287/6-282/1. Diademed head of Alexander III to right, ram’s horn over his ear. Rev. ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ ΛΥΣΙΜΑΧΟΥ Athena seated left on throne, resting her left elbow on her shield and holding Nike in her outstretched right hand; in outer left field, Φ; in inner left, turreted head of Tyche to right. Thompson 237. A lovely, very well-centered and toned example, particularly nice. Extremely fine.

From the Molard Collection, Switzerland, acquired from Tradart before 2010.

The coinage of Lysimachos from Smyrna is very small: Thompson only knew of eight tetradrachms, all from the same dies. Since she wrote the total has probably increased by another six: this may well be the finest known example.
