    Description

    IONIA. Uncertain mint. Ca. 650-600 BC (or 550-500 BC). EL stater (23mm, 14.27 gm). NGC AU 3/5 - 4/5. Milesian standard. Forepart of bridled horse left; sunburst before chest, lotus flower on its back / Rectangular incuse punch between two square incuse punches, all with geometric patterned surfaces. Traité pl. II,24. L. Weidauer, Probleme der frühen Elektronprägung, TYPOS I (1975), 31, 139 (possibly same dies). An unusually desirable example of this interesting very early type on an exceptionally oblong flan which allows for the lotus flower to be fully present, unlike most specimens.
