    Choice Style, Toning

    PHOENICIA. Tyre. Ca. 126/5 BC-AD 65/6. AR shekel (27mm, 14.30 gm, 12h). NGC AU 5/5 - 4/5. Dated CY 9 (118/7 BC). Laureate head of Melqart right / TYPOY IEPAΣ KAI AΣYΛOY, eagle standing left on prow, palm frond over left wing; to left, LΘ (date) above club; to right, M; Phoenician bet between legs. DCA Supplement 2.9, 16. HGC 10, 357. An uncommonly handsome example with a superb head of Melqart is superb style (indeed we believe the lack of a "Fine Style" designation is something of an oversight by NGC), perfectly centered, deeply struck and beautifully toned.
