CILICIA, Mallos. circa 425-385 BC. Drachm (Silver, 14mm, 3.41 g 1). Sphinx seated to left. Rev. MAP Swan standing left with open wings. BMC -. SNG Copenhagen -. SNG Levante -. SNG Paris -. SNG von Aulock -. Apparently unpublished and unknown. Good very fine.


This hitherto apparently unknown Mallos Drachm may present an interesting link to the as yet unattributed Cilician Obols with a sphinx on their reverses and with a Gorgoneion on the obverse (below, lot 426): Could these be from Mallos, too?
