Rhodes, Caria, c. 31 - 61 A.D.
|Rhodos|, |Rhodes,| |Caria,| |c.| |31| |-| |61| |A.D.|, BMC Caria identifies the obverse bust as Alektrona (also called Electryone), a daughter of Helios and Rhodos. She died a virgin and was worshiped as a heroine on the island of Rhodes. She was possibly worshiped as goddess of the morning, or of man's waking sense, which causes him to wake up in the morning. The Doric form of her name, Alektrona, is akin to the Greek word for "rooster," while the Attic form Electryone is akin to the word for "amber," as in the amber color of sunrise. A marble tablet from the 3rd century B.C. found in Ialyssus contains an inscription about the regulations for visitors to the temple of Alektrona.
