Alexander The Great Gorytos149 viewsAlexander The Great, bronze, gorytos type, four chalkoi (hemiobol), 336 - 323 BC, 17mm, 4.4g
Western Asia Minor, M.J. Price 322, Müller 1699, SNG Saraglos 843, SNG Milano 145,
SNG Stockholm 284, SNG Cop. 1059, McClean 3516.
This Alexander bronze type, like the first, also features Herakles on the obverse and a soldier's weapons on the reverse.
But in this case the weapons are a gorytos (case for bow and quiver) along with a club, and the bow lies within the gorytos
rather than underneath the quiver.
Often the gorytos is referred to as a bow case, but it also holds arrows as well so is probably best referred to as a gorytos.
Sometimes it's erroneously referred to as an arrow case or quiver, by dealers as well as attribution references,
with no distinction made between the gorytos and quiver bronze types.
SNG Manchester mistakenly referred to it as a bull's head based upon the worn specimen they had to attribute.
Gorytos bronzes are seen less frequently than the quiver bronzes. The mint mark on this particular variety, below the gorytos, is the letter E.

Two dots under the stock of this coin may indicate that it is a hemiobol although the weight, 0.29 grams, is closer to the Aeginetan quarterobol standard of 0.25 grams (hemiobol is 0.51 grams).

Topalov Type 18: Quarterobols (as per the system of Aegina (0.25 g)) – “Upright Anchor – Swastika in concave sectors with additional schematic images of eight dolphins or fish” (519/512 -480/478 B.C.)
Obv.: Upright anchor with relatively big flukes and stock. A group of dots under the stock (probably one l. and one r.).
Rev.: Schematic image of swastika (with arms bent to the right) in a concave square. Two lines representing schematic images of two dolphins or two fish in every sector.

Beautifuly centered and struck to high relief and good metal. A splendid example of the ancient work of art. The design of this Trihemiobol is ultimately derived from the famous Athenian Dekadrachm.

Notes from Forum:

While not noted in Svoronos, this type is fairly common on Cyprus and many have been found in the excavations at Neopaphos. The lack of a central depression indicates they were struck after 96 B.C. Recent Cypriot numismatic publications date them to the time when Cleopatra VII of Egypt was the ruler of the island

Some sources name this bird a swan, while most suggest a goose. No matter, since both are of the same family, and both were indigenous to Macedonia.
Perhaps more importantly though, both species are known to mate for life, and so were sacred to Hera, goddess of marriage, and also to me.
Here in Oregon, the departure of the geese each year heralds the coming of Spring, as their arrival later in the year forebode the inevitable Winter.

Denomination: Silver Drachm; Mint: Larissa; Date: c. 405/400 BC - c. 370 BC4; Weight: 6.11g; Diameter: 19mm; Die axis: 90º; References, for example: SNG Cop 126; Herrmann Group VII, Series I, Reverse II, pl. VI, 16 and 19; HGC 4, 434; Lorber - Shahar Group 3 Head Type 14 (O35/R2 - Sp. b, this very coin) = Florilegium Numismaticum Group One Head Type 11 with Reverse 21.2 - Sp. b (this very coin).

Notes:
1Lorber presumes that these letters are “...an abbreviated epithet of the nymph Larissa.” (Lorber Early in FlorNum, p. 261).
2Lorber invites us to interpret this “distinctive gesture” as the nymph “...tossing her ball, an action regularly depicted on trihemiobols and obols of the fifth century.” (Lorber Early in FlorNum, p. 262).
3Lorber understands these letters to be the signature of the mint’s chief engraver, who replaced ΣΙΜΟ. See Lorber Early in FlorNum, p. 261.
4This is the date range provided in Lorber 2008, p. 126.

The city of Larissa was named after the local water nymph, said to be the daughter of Pelasgos. He was said to be the ancestor of the pre-Greek Pelasgians. According to myth Larissa drowned while playing ball on the banks of the Peneios river. (HGC 4 p. 130).

literature. The coin was found in a hoard, in 2009, not far from his native city. Most likely the treasure was laid during the invasion of the region diadoch Perdiccas, who undertook to conquer Eumenes this region. This coin, which was probably minted for the city's defense, is very similar to the referenced coins. City Laranda was destroyed in 322 BC The obverse of the coin depicts the Baal or Melkart - deity who later the Romans identified with Heracles. Wolf on the reverse is likely to relate to the cult of Apollo Likeys (gr. likos = wolf) - one of the most ancient of worship among the Greeks. This cult was especially popular in southern Asia Minor - in Lycia, Cilicia, etc. Very names of these regions contain the root of "wolf" and speak for themselves. A curious technology that was used for coinage coins: blanks are rectangular in shape and have sharp edges. It is very likely that their cut from sheet metal. Maybe that's why all the coins of this type are surprisingly accurate weight - 0.45 grams.

Verify ref: cf. Klein 652 and SNG Paris 2311. Laranda was attacked and destroyed by Perdiccas in 322 B.C. This coin, which was probably minted for the city's defense, is very similar to the referenced coins. Those coins have the name of the city, LARAN, above a similar wolf forepart and are on similar slightly squared flans. This coin has only L, which surely stands for Laranda.

325_-_310_BC_ALEXANDER_III_AE_Hemiobol~0.JPG
GREEK, Macedonian kingdom, Alexander III the Great, AE Hemiobol (4 Chalkoi). Struck 325 – 310 BC at an uncertain mint in Macedonia.39 viewsObverse: No legend. Head of Herakles facing right, wearing lion-skin knotted at base of neck.
Reverse: A quiver (arrow case) placed on top of a bow and below it a club, large B A between; mint-mark, below the club, is a laurel branch.
Diameter: 17mm | Weight: 5.1gms | Die Axis: 7
Price: 385 | Sear: 6742

This coin is a sub-type of the quiver type (Type 1B), with the inscription now reading B A (for BAΣIΛEOΣ AΛEΞANĐPOY = KING ALEXANDER). Price believed this coin type was minted both during and after Alexander's lifetime.

336_-_323_BC_ALEXANDER_III_AE_Hemiobol.JPG
GREEK, Macedonian kingdom, Alexander III the Great, AE Hemiobol (4 Chalkoi). Struck 336 – 320 BC at Miletus, Caria.43 viewsObverse: No legend. Head of Alexander the Great as Herakles, wearing lion-skin knotted at base of neck, facing right.
Reverse: AΛEΞANĐPOY. Bow in Gorytos (a case for bow and quiver) above, club and compound ΠΥΡ monogram below.
Diameter: 18mm | Weight: 5.79gms | Die Axis: 3
Price:0335

Alexander the Great reigned from 336 to 323 BC but, although Price supposes this coin to be a lifetime issue, Thompson proposes the posthumous date of 321 – 320 BC (Thompson series VI) based on the ΠΥΡ control mark.

It is difficult to interpret the die orientation in these issues because not only is it unclear what the Ancient Greeks would have considered “up” with respect to the reverse design but modern scholars are ambiguous on the subject as well. I have, however, assumed that the modern conventional orientation is with the name reading horizontally, and therefore have described my example as having a 3 o’clock orientation, the “top” of the reverse being aligned with the back of Herakles’ head on the obverse.

325_-_310_BC_ALEXANDER_III__Hemiobol.JPG
Kingdom of Macedonia, Alexander the Great. AE Hemiobol (4 Chalkoi). Struck 325 – 310 BC at an uncertain mint in Macedonia.20 viewsObverse: No legend. Head of Herakles facing right, wearing lion-skin knotted at base of neck.
Reverse: A quiver (arrow case) placed on top of a bow and below it a club, large B A between; mint-mark, below the club, is a laurel branch.
Diameter: 17mm | Weight: 5.1gms | Die Axis: 7
Price: 385 | Sear: 6742

This coin is a subtype of the quiver type (Type 1B), with the inscription now reading B A (for BAΣIΛEOΣ AΛEΞANĐPOY = KING ALEXANDER). Price believed this coin type was minted both during and after Alexander's lifetime.

336_-_323_BC_ALEXANDER_III_Hemiobol.JPG
Kingdom of Macedonia, Alexander the Great. AE Hemiobol (4 Chalkoi). Struck 336 – 323 BC at Macedon.10 viewsObverse: No legend. Head of Alexander the Great as Herakles, wearing lion-skin knotted at base of neck, facing right.
Reverse: AΛEΞANĐPOY. Bow in Gorytos (a case for bow and quiver) above, club and compound ΠΥΡ monogram below.
Diameter: 18mm | Weight: 5.79gms | Die Axis: 3
Price: 0335

Alexander the Great reigned from 336 to 323 BC but, although Price supposes this coin to be a lifetime issue, Thompson proposes the posthumous date of 321 – 320 BC (Thompson series VI) based on the control mark.

It is difficult to interpret the die orientation in these issues because not only is it unclear what the Ancient Greeks would have considered “up” with respect to the reverse design but modern scholars are ambiguous on the subject as well. I have, however, assumed that the modern conventional orientation is with the name reading horizontally, and therefore have described my example as having a 3 o’clock orientation, the “top” of the reverse being aligned with the back of Herakles’ head on the obverse.

During the Peloponnesian War, 431 - 404 B.C., Cyzicus was subject alternately to the Athenians and Lacedaemonians. In the naval Battle of Cyzicus in 410, an Athenian fleet completely destroyed a Spartan fleet. At the peace of Antalcidas in 387, like the other Greek cities in Asia, it was made over to Persia. Alexander the Great captured it from the Persians in 334 B.C.

This is one of the gorytos bronzes that Price does attribute to Asia Minor, in this case to an uncertain mint in western Asia Minor. Price didn't indicate his reasoning or precedents of his attribution. In the past, this variety was often attributed as an anonymous issue. SNG Tübingen, SNG Cop. and AMNG III/2, for instance, attributed it this way, though McClean and Hunterian give it to Alexander. The inscription consists of just the royal title "Basileos" ("King"), the full meaning of which could be "of King Alexander", or it could refer to another king as this bronze type was issued by others beside Alexander. Along with the inscription, the styling of this particularly variety is also distinctive, particularly Herakles battle-fierce gaze, which may well be meant to refer to Alexander himself. During Alexander's reign the East was more receptive to such statements of regal authority than Greece and Macedonia. The mint mark on this specimen, below the club, is a torch, sometimes called a race torch (from rg.ancients.info/alexander/bronzes.html)

Because the legend is only BASILEWS this type is from the time of the confusion after the death of Alexander the Great. So it is probably Philip III (rover1.3)

The image of Zeus Ithomatas is a recurring theme on the civic coinage of Messene; a symbol of the Messenian belief that after four centuries of bondage to their Spartan neighbours that they had the support and assistance of the Zeus to maintain their independence and freedom.

MYSIE - CYZIQUE
(VIe - Ve siècle avant J.-C.)
Cyzique, colonie de Milet fondée au VIIIe siècle avant J.-C., est située au bord la Propontide sur l'île d'Arktonnesos. Sa situation politique et économique était prépondérante entre le Pont-Euxin et la Mer Égée en contrôlant la Propontide au débouché de l'Hellespont. Le monnayage débuta à la fin du VIIe siècle avant J.-C. Un important monnayage d'électrum fut frappé entre 600 et 330 avant J.-C. avec le thon comme symbole.

MYSIE - LAMPSAQUE
(Ve - IVe siècle avant J.-C.)
Lampsaque, placée à l'entrée de l'Hellespont, était une colonie phocéenne. Enjeu permanent de la rivalité qui opposait les Grecs et les Perses, Lampsaque entra dans la confédération délienne après la bataille de Mycale en 479 avant J.-C. Elle se détacha de la tutelle athénienne en 412 avant J.-C., mais fut reprise. Entre la chute d'Athènes en 404 avant J.-C. et la bataille de Cnide en 394 avant J.-C., puis la paix d'Antalcidas en 387 avant J.-C., la cité changea souvent de camp passant de l'influence grecque à celle du grand Roi et de ses satrapes. En 334, à l'arrivée d'Alexandre le Grand, la cité fut épargnée bien que favorable à Darius III Codoman avec Memnon, despote de la cité. La ville connut une grande prospérité à l'époque hellénistique.

Background Information:

Phokaia (Phocaea) (modern day Foca, Turkey), northern most of the Ionian cities, located on the western coast of Anatolia (asia minor), at the mouth of the river Hermus (now Gediz), and between the Gulf of Smyrna (now Izmir) to the south and the Gulf of Cyme to the north. Phokaia had a thriving seafaring economy and a powerful naval fleet. It was one of the largest cities of the ancient world. Herodotus described the walls of the city as having a diameter of 5 kilometers. Probably following the Lydians, the Phocaeans were among the earliest in the world to make and use coins as money.

Rider and Larissa Seated17 viewsThessaly Greece, the City of Larissa

Obv: Rider on a horse prancing r., holding a single spear transversally with petasos flying backwards and chlamys on his back, beneath horse’s belly a lion’s head facing r. Border of dots or small grains.1
Rev: The nymph Larissa2 seated r. on a chair with a back ending in a swan’s head, r. hand resting on her lap or thigh and holding a phiale, l. arm raised with palm forward,3 Λ and Α above to l. and r. of head with R and Ι to r. of body turned 90º and downward, all within a shallow incuse square.
Denomination: Silver Trihemiobol; Mint: Larissa; Date: mid- to late 5th Century BC4; Weight: 1.28g5; Diameter: 13mm; Die axis: 60º; References, for example: BMC Thessaly p. 25, 13; Weber 2838; Traité IV, 651, pl. CCXCVI, 9; Herrmann Group II, Pl. 1, 7; BCD Thessaly II 154; HGC 4, 466.

Notes:
1Forrer, BCD Thessaly II, and Hoover refer to the border as composed of dots; Babelon refers to the border as composed of small grains.
2Herrmann does not associate the figure on the reverse with the nymph Larissa. Instead he refers to the figure as a “sitting male” and cites two examples from Berlin and Warren 687 as having the indication of beards (p.9). He declares that the meaning [interpretation] of the sitter cannot be determined, but he invites us to think of a deity (p. 11).
3Forrer and BCD Thessaly II state that Larissa is holding a mirror, Hoover mentions only that the arm is raised, Babelon indicates that the left arm is raised with palm forward, and Herrmann describes the left hand as raised in an “adoring gesture”. On the coin here the left hand clearly has the thumb separated from the rest of the fingers with the palm facing forward; there is no indication that the hand is holding anything. I wonder what the intention of the gesture could have been.
4Dates in the sources cited here run the gamut of the 5th Century BC. Herrmann: c. 500 - 479 BC; Babelon: c. 470 - 430 BC; HGC: c. 440 - 420 BC; Forrer: c. 430 - 400 BC. In light of Kagen (2004) and his belief that Herrmann’s Group I ended c. 460 BC it seems appropriate to choose the date range specified in BCD Thessaly II.
5Herrmann argues that Group II was struck on the Persian weight standard. (He believed that the same held true for Group I). Kagan (2004) demonstrates that Larissain coinage was not struck on the Persian weight standard.

The city of Larissa was named after the local water nymph, said to be the daughter of Pelasgos. He was said to be the ancestor of the pre-Greek Pelasgians. According to myth Larissa drowned while playing ball on the banks of the Peneios river. (HGC 4 p. 130).

Very Scarce
ex Savoca Coins

A peculiar little coin with obscure symbolism.
Even the vessel type is uncertain. It is often called a ‘skyphos’, although those are typically two-handled. I have also seen it referred to as a ‘kyathos’, but that type usually has its single handle molded extremely long, making it more useful as a dipper.
This scarce coin is more commonly seen with the cup handle to the right. The reverse can also depict a ‘K’ within the wreath, or even a race torch. An empty wreath is also recorded.

Rare
From the E.E. Clain Stefanelli collection. ex Naville Numismatics

Vlasto defines this series as ‘trihemiobols’, claiming the ):( symbol to be a mark of value. Whether this is true, and if so why this symbol relates to a trihemiobol, which suggests an approximate weight of .75g, I cannot say. However based on an obol of .50g I would have to agree with Rutter et al and declare this type to be a diobol.

"The Yehud coinage is a series of small silver coins bearing the Aramaic inscription Yehud. They derive their name from the inscription YHD, "Yehud", the Aramaic name of the Achaemenid Persian province of Yehud; others are inscribed YHDH, the same name in Hebrew.

Yehud Medinata (Aramaic for "the province of Judah"), Yahud Medin'ta/Yahud Medinsa, or simply Yehud, was an autonomous province of the Persian Achaemenid Empire, roughly equivalent to the older kingdom of Judah but covering a smaller area, within the satrapy of Eber-Nari. The area of Yehud Medinata corresponded to the previous Babylonian province with the same name, formed after the fall of the kingdom of Judah to the Neo-Babylonian Empire (c.597 after its conquest of the Mediterranean east coast, and again in 585/6 BCE after suppressing an unsuccessful Judean revolt). Yehud Medinata continued to exist for two centuries, until being incorporated into the Hellenistic empires, following the conquests of Alexander the Great. - From Wikipedia

Cyzkios (Cyzicum, Kyzikos): Located in modern Turkey, at the northern end of the isthmus between the Kapidag peninsula and the mainland, beside the Bandirma road about 10km/6mi southwest of Erdek, lie the remains of the ancient trading colony of Kyzikos (or Belkis), known by the poetic name of Dindymos. It was probably settled from Miletus in the second millennium B.C. and was certainly inhabited by Miletian settlers by 756 B.C. It is mentioned in the story of Jason and the Argonauts which tells how in error they killed the hospitable king who had earlier made them welcome. In 334 Alexander the Great built two bridges joining the southern tip of the island to the mainland. After Kyzikos declined, sand continuously washing up against the piles of the bridges caused the channel slowly to silt up and the isthmus was formed. Following Lucullus's decisive victory over Mithridates, Kyzikos became a "free" city and capital of Mysia. Badly damaged on several occasions by earthquakes (particularly in 543 and 1063) and by Arab assault (673), and further ravaged in fighting between Byzantines, Seljuks and Crusaders, it was finally abandoned in 1224. Little now remains to be seen, only a section of the walls, the site of the theater and some ruins of the amphitheater and of Hadrian's Temple to Zeus from which in the 16th century columns were removed to embellish Istanbul's mosques. Finds from Kyzikos are displayed in the museum in Erdek.
