Thracian Kingdom Lysimachos AR tetradrachm17 viewsThracian Kingdom. Lysimachos. As King, 306-281 B.C. AR tetradrachm (28 mm, 16.20 g, 12 h). Chalcedon, ca. 260s B.C. Diademed head of deified Alexander right, wearing horn of Ammon / [Β]ΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ [Λ]ΥΣΙΜΑΧΟΥ, Athena seated left, holding Nike and resting elbow on shield set behind her; spear at far side; in inner left field, ΛΥ monogram or N. Marinescu grp. II; Meydancikkale -; Mektepini -. Lightly toned.

Although the control is noted for Byzantion (cf. Marinescu grp. II, issue 33, 81), the style of the obverse is clearly not Byzantine but rather Chalcedonian. Marinescu does not record the control for Chalcedon, although he does record a very similar AN monogram (cf. Marinescu grp. II, issue 13, 27-32; Mektepini 151) that has wheat stalk in exergue.

D N CONSTAN_S P F AVG
Pearl-diademed, draped, cuirassed bust left, globe in right hand
FEL TEMP-REPARATIO
Emperor, wearing pearl-diadem, in military dress standing left, labarum in right hand, left hand resting on shield, two bound captives with crested helmets kneeling before, looking at each other
* | E (?) across fields
ALEG in exergue
20mm x 21mm, 4.24g
RIC VIII, 64v

Note: This is a very unusual piece in several aspects - first, it is nearly fully silvered, which is very difficult to find from this period on centenionalii. Also, RIC specifically describes the emperor on the reverse as bare-headed, which he is not on this specimen. Normally, the emperor's chlamys is shown long and somewhat flying behind, but on this specimen it is extremely short, possibly so the right field would be available for the epsilon (?) mark (engraver's signature?)
