    Description

    MACEDONIAN KINGDOM. Alexander III the Great (336-323 BC). AR drachm. NGC VF. Posthumous issue of Lampsacus,  ca. 310-301 BC. Head of Heracles right, wearing lion skin headdress / Zeus seated left, holding eagle and scepter; below throne, Artemis Phosphorus running left with torch. Price --. cf.1379 and 1387. (Artemis below throne, symbols in left field ).

    This would appear to be an unrecorded variant of Price 1379 and 1387, both of which feature symbols (forepart of Pegasus and S-shaped buckle) in the left field along with Artemis Phosphorus ("light bringer") below the throne, as seen here. Although not perfectly centered, enough of the left field is present so that any additional symbol should be evident at least in part, and there is none visible.

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
