KINGS of THRACE, Macedonian. Lysimachos. 305-281 BC. AV Stater (20mm, 8.42 g, 11h). Ephesos mint. Struck circa 295/4-289/8 BC. Diademed head of the deified Alexander right, with horn of Ammon / BAΣIΛEΩΣ ΛYΣIMAXOY, Athena Nikephoros seated left, left arm resting on shield, transverse spear in background; no control marks. Thompson –; Müller –; HGC 3, –; Pozzi 1164 = Pozzi (Boutin) 2622 (same obv. die); Triton XXII, lot 170; CNG 70, lot 157; CNG 67, lot 502; Pecunem 38, lot 59 (same dies). Lightly toned, underlying luster. EF.

Although there are no control marks on this issue, the distinct and unusual portrait style here – with the long downswept hair on the forehead, and mostly bare neck – is identical to that found on many tetradrachms of Thompson 166–7 (cf. Bement 897) and their associated drachms (Thompson –, but cf. Triton XVIII, lots 3 and 423).
