Lot 87
Estimate: 30000 CHF
MYSIA, Kyzikos. Circa 400 BC. Stater (Electrum, 16.00 g). Head of Aphrodite to left, wearing diadem ornamented with a palmette, a flower over her forehead and a pendant earring; below truncation, tunny fish swimming to left. Rev. Quadripartite incuse square. BMFA 1553. Gulbenkian 647. SNG France 287. SNG von Aulock 7316. Von Fritze 135. Very rare. Attractively toned and with a lovely classical head of Aphrodite. About extremely fine.


From the Outstanding Collection, Leu 81, 16 May 2001, 248 and ex Christie’s, London, 7 October 1986, 117.

The head of Aphrodite on this coin is particularly elegant in form. In the catalogue of the collection of the Cabinet des Médailles in Paris this type is dated, in error, to c. 500-450 BC. The date of c. 400, as used by Jenkins in his Gulbenkian catalogue, is much preferable.
