Recommended Posts

Salve.

Volevo condividere questo statere cipriota della collezione ANS (American Numismatic Society).

Una tacca di saggio sul diritto, la cui simmetrica nulla toglie alla raffinatezza della moneta.

Secondo statere con l’octopus abbinato a una testa di leone sull’altra faccia (Spink, 15004).

Ancient Coins 
Cyprus, uncertain mint (early 5th cent. BC), AR Stater, 10.84g, lion's head right, rev. octopus, Cypriot letters resembling - I in lower field, within shallow incuse square (Num. Chron. 1935, 553, pl. XVI, 7 - same reverse die; Kraay, ACGC, 1101 var. - lion's head left), an extremely rare issue, known only from the Larnaka hoard of 1933. The octopus closely imitates that on issues of Eretria at the time of the Ionian revolt, which Cyprus briefly participated in. Cleaning scratches round types and small areas of deposit still evident, toned, very fine.

 

L’octopus presenta strette analogie con quello sulle emissioni di Eretria al tempo della rivolta ionica, alla quale Cipro aveva partecipato per breve tempo. Come stile generale siamo però ben lontani dallo statere presentato all’inizio.
