Lot 1013
Estimate: 500 CHF
THESSALY, Ainianes. Circa 360s-350s BC. Hemidrachm (Silver, 2.76 g 12), Hypata. Laureate head of Zeus to left, similar to the last. Rev. ΑΙΝΙΑΝ-ΩΝ The hero Phemios, similar to the last. BMC 2. BMFA 871. Jameson 1079A (this coin). Traité IV, 452, pl. CCLXXXVII, 15. Rare. Toned and attractive, though with some very slight surface roughness. Extremely fine.


Ex Monnaies et Médailles 61, 7 October 1981, 106 (CHF 6000), and from the collections of W. Niggeler, I, Bank Leu/Münzen und Medaillen 3 December 1965, 250, R. Jameson and J. P. Lambros, Hirsch XXIX, 9 November 1910, 309.

This coin is probably marginally later than the two preceding examples, since it uses the more usual legend with a break on the reverse. The obverse dies are all amazingly similar to each other, though they are all different. A note from BCD: The similarity of the obverse dies means that the same die engraver was responsible for all the 4th century issues of this mint. ASW is therefore quite right in compressing the chronology of this issue (by far the most abundant amongst the early Ainianes hemidrachms) to within the decade 360-350.
