AMYN-TA Eagle standing to left, head turned to right, within incuse square. HGC 8.1, 830. SNG Alpha Bank 200. SNG ANS 94. SNG Copenhagen 513-514. Westermark, 33.

Most of the known examples of the series, weight between 1.20 and 1.30 gr, struck on debased silver and are considered diobols. The present example, with a weight of 1.79 gr, is nevertheless part of a smaller group struck in fine silver and is considered a triobol or a debased tetrobol of the Thraco-Macedonian standard. Is it the purity of the alloy that determines the denomination, or is it always the same denomination but does the fineness indicate different periods of minting?.
