Notes:     Sale: CNG 73, Lot: 418 This coin is likely a product of a mint in Ionia or Caria. The style of the lion is similar to those found on the coins of Miletos, Knidos, and Lindos. Of these cities, however, only Miletos has known electrum coinage, but the design in the Miletos incuses is distinctly different from this coin. The incuse on this coin is most similar to those of Samos. While Samos has electrum coinage with lion types, none of these types are similar to that on the present coin.
