    One Of Three Known

    PAMPHYLIA. Side. Ca. 490-450 BC. AR stater (18mm, 10.94 gm, 4h). NGC Choice XF 4/5 - 4/5. Pomegranate, ΣIΔH (retrograde) to left; all within beaded circular border / Raven standing right, 'NRBISBÆK' in Sidetic script around, within beaded border and incuse square. A. Destrooper-Georgiades, An Unusual Coin from Side" in NK 14 (1995), fig. 1 = D. Tsangari, Alpha Bank Collection (Athens, 2007), 157 (same dies). Extremely rare, one of only three known examples.

    This extremely rare archaic type is believed to be the first coinage from the important mint of Side in Pamphylia, which went on to strike an immense number of coins over the next seven centuries. The pomegranate is a recurring symbol on coins of Side; however, the raven is rarely depicted on Greek coins and is not seen on the city's future issues.
