Lot 1022
Estimate: 250 CHF
THESSALY, Ainianes. Circa 40s-30s BC. Hemidrachm (Silver, 2.32 g 12), Hypata. Tolmaios. ΤΟΛΜΑΙΟΣ Laureate head of Zeus to left. Rev. ΑΙΝΙΑΝ-ΩΝ The hero Phemios, nude but for a belt holding a short sword in a scabbard and a chlamys draped over his shoulders and his left arm, standing left, facing front with his head turned to right, hurling a javelin with his right hand and holding his petasos, as if it were a small shield, with his left; to right, monogram of ΑΓ. BMC 15. SNG Copenhagen 8 var. Weber 2790. Very rare. Lightly toned. Very fine.


The date of this coinage is quite uncertain: it is usually placed c. 168 and later. But how much later? In our arrangement here these rare issues come at the end of the coinage of the Ainianes, at roughly the time of similar issues bearing magistrates’ names on their obverses, such as those of the Thessalian League (below, lot 388) and others struck by various cities using Achaean League types in the Peloponnesos (as BCD 430 ff. [Aegium] and 687 ff. [Elis]). Only further research can bear this out.
