Lot 1016
Estimate: 125 CHF
THESSALY, Ainianes. Circa 302-286 BC. Chalkous (Bronze, 16mm, 2.87 g 5), Hypata. Laureate head of Zeus to right; behind head, thunderbolt. Rev. ΑΙΝΙΑ-ΝΩΝ The hero Phemios, as above, lots 11 ff., but not certainly using a javelin, though with a petasos in his left hand, and with two spears behind him, that lean against his right leg. Rogers 136 var. Rare. Attractive red and green patina. Good very fine.


Ex Künker 27, 27 September 1994, 191 (part).

The reverses of the coinage of the Ainianes can be divided into two main groups: the first, which I believe is the earlier, bears the figure of Phemios who appears as a warrior with a short spear and either a petasos or a petasos-like small shield; the second also bears a depiction of Phemios, but using a sling instead of a spear. In any case the coins that show him as a slinger are definitely later in date. The present coin appears to combine both types and is typical of the kind of confusing iconography found on some Greek coins!
