Usual die-break on obverse, otherwise, choice extremely fine.

Myskellos, obeying a directive of the oracle of Delphi, led a group of Achaean settlers to the site and founded the city around 710 BC. This divine sanction is represented by the tripod of the oracle, which became the civic badge of Kroton and is featured on its coinage.

Very rare. Lightly toned. Among the most famous of all Greek coins... Good very fine. The Bru Sale 2010 (1) lot 10; acquired privately from Numismatica Genevensis The so-called Demareteion series, of dekadrachms, tetradrachms and fractions, is surely the most famous of all the archaic and early classical coinage of Syracuse, and was produced by a masterful engraver of great ability who also cut dies for Leontinoi. Named from the first Syracusan dekadrachm, long identified with the queen Demarete, ca. 480-479 BC, but now known to have been made rather later, these coins are marked out as a special issue by their superlative style, by the unusual olive wreath Arethusa wears, and by the running lion on their obverses.

Description: SICILY, A SILVER TETRADRACHM OF SYRACUSE, reverse die signed by the Master Eukleidas, ca. 405-400 BC, 16.642g, 10h. Baldwin 57 = Tudeer 58a = SNG Lloyd 1384 (these dies). Pozzi 1278 (these dies). Perfectly centered and struck on a broad flan. An important and innovative coin with one of the most successful facing heads in all of Greek coinage. Among the finest known. Extremely fine. Acquired privately from Tradart; former Armand Trampitsch (1893-1975) collection, Jean Vinchon November 1986 lot 106 "The crest of her great helmet swept the clouds..." (Quintus Smyrnaeus, Fall of Troy, 8.350). Athena, for the first time, appears in the Syracusan numismatic art, decked with a richly decorated helmet and dolphins swimming around. Furthermore the head, so gracefully set on the curving neck, is depicted here not in profile but facing the viewer. The beauty of this representation of Athena - one of the most outstanding compositions in numismatic history - is attested by Agnes Baldwin in her study on the Facing heads on ancient Greek coins: "The Athena of Eukleidas is distinguished for Pheidian majesty, and can hardly be excelled..."

Description: THRACE, A SILVER STATER OF THASOS, ca. 480 BC, 9.570g. Hirmer 435. Old cabinet tone. Perfectly centered and unusually struck on a broad flan. Lovely archaic style. Choice extremely fine. Acquired privately from Tradart; The Numismatic Auction 1983 (2) lot 71 The overtly sexual displays seen on many early Greek coins can be disconcerting to the modern eye, viewing them through the lens of centuries of Christian fulminations against 'paganism' and its erotic excesses. These scenes are at their most graphic in northern Greece, for example, on the archaic coins of 'Lete' and the island of Thasos, showing the interplay of nymphs and satyrs. The towns and tribes of this region were only newly introduced to the 'civilizing' influences of the south, and were still close to their roots in farming and herding cultures. Their gods were not the Olympian super beings, but the spirits of nature, and the emphasis was on celebrating the fecundity of fields and flocks.

Description: THRACE, A SILVER TETRADRACHM OF LYSIMACHOS, Lampsakos, ca. 297-282 BC, 17.036g, 12h. Müller 401. Old cabinet tone. Perfectly centered and struck in high relief. With a magnificent, elegant portrait of the finest style. Choice extremely fine. Acquired privately from Tradart; Bank Leu 1988 (45) lot 92 This is a masterpiece of early hellenistic coin engraving with a superb portrait of Alexander the Great. No life-time coin portraits of Alexander are known, and the first coins bearing his effigy were minted at Alexandria shortly after his death. They are surpassed, however, by the expression, the power and the brilliance of the Alexander heads on issues of Lysimachos struck in northern Greece and Asia Minor of which our tetradrachm is an irresistable example. The ram horn alludes to Alexander visit to the Ammon oracle in the oasis of Siwa in 331 BC. The god allegedly greeted him as his son and Alexander henceforward claimed Ammon as his true father rather than Philip II.

With a particularly elegant head of Zeus of the finest late classical style. Choice extremely fine. Acquired privately from Tradart; Jean Vinchon April 1988 lot 345; former Henry de Nanteuil de la Norville (1876-1941) collection "Philip took care to have his victories at Olympia engraved upon his coins..." (Plutarch, Life of Alexander, 4.9). Coins were frequently used to advertise victories at Olympia and other games. Philip II displayed his synoris (two-horse chariot race) victory on gold staters, and his keles (horseback race) victory on silver tetradrachms. The keles was added to the Olympic program in 648 BC and seems to have covered a distance of six stadia (approximately 1.2km). The jockeys were small boys, probably slaves, who rode without benefit of saddle or stirrups (which had not yet been invented), although they did have reins connected to a bit in the horse mouth and a whip, similar to a riding crop. It was a double triumph for Philip: he not only won the race but, more importantly, he had been admitted to the games as a true Greek; a barbarian, indeed, as many enemies called him, was note eligible...

Acquired privately from Tradart The obverse type probably commemorates the battle of Lysimachia of 277 BC, at which Gonatas defeated the Celtic invaders of Macedon with the aid of an epiphany of the god Pan which inspired panic fear in the enemy according to Diogenes Laertius. Thereafter Gonatas associated himself closely with the god, founding a festival in his honor at Delos.

They supported Darius invasion of Greece and frequently raided and plundered the territory of the Macedonian kings untils subdued by Philip II. He allowed them to retain their own dynasty, which often functioned quite independently of the Macedonian monarchy.

Acquired privately from Tradart; Victor Gadoury October 1980 lot 267 The greatest king of his time, Mithradates spent the early part of his reign enlarging his kingdom. In his maturity he challenged Rome, taking possession of Cappadocia, Bithynia, Phrygia, Galatia and the province of Asia, massacring all the Italians he found in his domains - some 80.000 people. The Roman thirst for revenge was implacable, and it required three wars and the services of Sulla, Lucullus and Pompey to drive Mithradates from his kingdom to suicide.

Exceptional realistic late portrait. Among the finest known. Superb extremely fine. Acquired privately from Tradart "King Prusias was ugly of aspect, and though possessed of fair reasoning power, was but half a man as regards his appearance. In military matters he was despicable and womanly: for not only was he a coward, but he was incapable of putting up with hardship, and, to put it briefly, he was effeminate in body and mind throughout his whole life, a defect that no one, least of all the Bithynians, likes to see in a king..."

Description: MYSIA, A GOLD STATER OF LAMPSAKOS, ca. 350-340 BC, 8.431g, 3h. JIAN 1902 (5) 9h = Baldwin 29s (this coin). Very rare. Attractively toned with underlying luster. A lovely coin with a powerful head of Zeus of the finest late classical style. Minor die-break on obverse, otherwise, extremely fine. Acquired privately from Spink; former Gustav Philipsen (1853-1925) collection, Jacob Hirsch 1909 (25) lot 1790 Lampsakos minted an important gold coinage in the fourth century BC, and all specimens had on the reverse the forepart of a Pegasus, the badge of the city. The obverse design changed with each issue and over forty different issues are known for the sixty years in which the city produced coinage. This issue has a wonderful bearded head of Zeus, here holding a sceptre woth a lotus-head over his shoulder. The changing types are slightly unexpected on gold coinage, and must betray the influence of the electrum coinage of Kyzikos. The variety and artistry with which the dies were engraved makes Lampsacene coinage one of the most brilliant Greek coinages.

Perfectly centered and struck on a broad flan. Among the finest known. Superb extremely fine. Acquired privately from Tradart Ptolemy was very early in his use of his portrait as a coin type. This is not inconsistent with the Egyptian tradition of divine kingship, but coinage was a Greek institution used primarily by the Macedonian ruling caste: thus Ptolemy's innovation remains both shrwed and daring. His portrait is one of the most distinctive on all of ancient coinage, not only for its blunt, ungainly features but for the frank and forceful charcater it reveals. The aegis is a divine attribute, and the reverse type reinforces the Jovian identification.
