This lead piece is a mystery. It may be a tessera or it may be a coin weight. Where and when it was made are uncertain. Facing head of Silenos types are most commonly found on coins from Sicily, Macedonia, Lesbos, and Mysia. The scallop shell is a common type for Italy and Sicily, but was used as a control symbol across the Greek world. If it is a weight, the weight is appropriate for an electrum hemihekte, a type which was struck at Kyzikos with a facing head of Silenos.
GB90212. Lead tessera, cf. Scholz 597 - 598 (Silenos obverse, blank reverse); roughly rectangular shape, 13.3 x 8.6 mm, 1.309 g, VF, a very attractive and unusual tiny artifact, c. 500 - 300 B.C.(?); obverse head of Silenos facing; reverse incuse scallop shell; ex CNG auction 324, part of lot 670; $155.00 (Ä134.85)
