Notes:     This attribution to the early Lycian Dynasts is not certain but probable. Their coins normally have the forepart of a Boar, including the forelegs, while this coin shows only a boar's head, however the general style is early Lycian. There is a Lycian 1/3 silver stater (Sear 3581) that also shows a boar's head without the forelegs.
