    Ex Numismatic Fine Arts, Auction XVIII (31 March 1987), lot 200.

    The city of Alabanda produced coinage with the name Antiochia until after the Battle of Magnesia in 190 BC. Isocrates was the last magistrate to issue coins under the city name of Antiochia and the first for Alabanda. The Alabanda issues are all very rare and the example by Isocrates was formerly known by a single tetradrachm in the Latakia Hoard of 1759.
