I wrote to G & N when this auction was still active and told them that it was
Milne, Oxford 3 in NC 1939.
They asked me for a copy of the entry from that Journal, which I sent them,
with the image if I remember correctly - almost a month before the auction ended,
but they did not change the description.
I have done this with numerous Lydian coins which they describe as "unpublished"
but they never change the description in the auction, possibly because it would play
havoc with the listings copied to places such as CoinAirchives, Sixbid etc.

Mind you, G & N have a helluva lot of Lydian (and other) coins which ARE unlisted -
I have found four in their current auction and probably 8 others since the beginning
of 2015.
With "unlisted" I mean that they are not in any of the hundreds of lists, collections,
journals, books, pdfs etc. which I consulted. (including spending a small fortune on
books I needed... but thanks to Uncle John Aiello I didn't need to buy ALL the ones
I needed.   :)
I will copy this reply to the "unlisted Lydian Coins wanted" thread as well.

hi all,

Looking at RPC III it looks like 1781 only reverse legends / monograms

http://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/coins/3/1781/

or is it similar?

Magistrate   Candidus (strategos)
Date   c. 128-30
Obverse inscription   ΑΔΡΙΑΝΟС ΚΤΙСΤΗС
Obverse design   laureate head of Hadrian, r.
Reverse inscription   ΑΔΡΙΑΝΟΠ СΤΡ ΚΑ
Reverse design   Nike standing l., holding wreath in r. hand and palm in l.


All the Best,
Eric
