    Description

    ZEUGITANA. Libyan Revolt (ca. 241-238 BC). BI shekel (7.61 gm). NGC AU 3/5 - 4/5, overstruck.  Head of Heracles left, wearing lion-skin headdress, paws tied before neck / Lion prowling right, M (Punic) above). Carradice & La Niece 1. MAA 53.

    The Punic letter perhaps abbreviates the term machanat ("camp") rather than the name Matho (a native rebel leader); the ethnic is thought to show that the coin was issued by the rebel alliance of mercenaries and natives, not by Carthage to pay the mercenaries.

    The host coin is partially visible on the reverse with the undertype of a Punic letter and the entire horse's head looking left on the shoulder of the lion. 

    Ex Schulman Auction (June 1961), lot 1299.

    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.
