    Description

    THRACIAN KINGDOM. Lysimachus (305-281 BC). AR tetradrachm (30mm, 17.16 gm, 12h). NGC MS 5/5 - 4/5, Fine Style, light marks. Pergamum, ca. 287/6-282 BC. Diademed head of deified Alexander III right, wearing horn of Ammon; K below / BAΣIΛEΩΣ / ΛYΣIMAXOY, Athena seated left, Nike crowning royal name in right hand, resting left arm on grounded shield with lion-head boss, transverse spear in background; herm left in outer left field, archaic xoanon (cult image) in inner left field, ΕΠ monogram in exergue. Thompson, Essays Robinson, 220 var. (monogram). Superb high-relief obverse with both sides meticulously engraved in fine style, halo effect along profile.

    The K-signed dies of Pergamum are often considered the finest style tetradrachm issue of Lysimachus. According to H.A. Cahn ("Frühhellenistiche Münzkunst, Kleine Schriften zur Münzkunde und Archäologie", Basel 1975, p. 121-126), this engraver may have been the same who designed, for the same mint, the dies of the famous portrait of Seleucus I on the silver tetradrachms of Philetaerus. 


    色雷斯王國。利西馬科斯(公元前305-281年)。標準重四德拉克马银幣(30mm, 17.16 gm, 12h)。NGC MS 5/5 - 4/5,Fine Style,轻微痕迹。 佩加蒙造幣廠,公元前6分之287 - 282年神化的亞歷山大三世戴額冠及阿蒙神角;字母K在下背幣文BASILEOS/ LYSIMAXOY,雅典娜坐姿面左,右手托尼克為王名加冕,左臂搭在有獅頭飾鈕的盾牌上,背景中長矛斜靠;底板左外側有方柱形胸像,左內測為古風十時期的"夏農"像,ΕΠ花押在刻記線處。參湯普森,Essays Robinson,220 var(花押)。精湛的高浮雕正面,兩面均為精心雕刻的精美風格,沿輪廓可見光暈效果。

    佩加蒙的K字簽名幣模通常被認為是利西馬科斯最好的四德拉克馬銀幣。根據H.A. Cahn("Frühhel lenistiche Münzkunst,Kleine Schriften zur Münzkunde und Archäologie",Basel 1975,p.121-126),為同一造幣廠設計了菲萊泰羅斯的四德拉克馬銀幣上著名的塞琉古一世肖像的,可能與這位雕刻師系同一人。
