Lot 66
Estimate: 650 CHF
THRACO-MACEDONIAN REGION. Siris. Circa 500-490 BC. Trihemiobol or 1/8 Stater (Silver, 9 mm, 1.29 g). Nude satyr seated right with his knees up before him; to left and right, pellet. Rev. Diagonally divided incuse square. SNG ANS 971-973. Svoronos pl. VIII, 13-17. Toned, boldly struck and in high relief: an attractive piece. About extremely fine.

From a Swiss collection, acquired in the 1980s or before.

This type is usually described as showing kneeling satyr, but when you look at it carefully it seems much more likely that he is comfortably sitting down, about to clasp his knees with his hands. Perhaps we should envision a group of satyrs, all sitting around a campfire, chatting away and boasting about their exploits with various nymphs and maenads!.
