Notes:     Sale: Triton XII, Lot: 343 Very rare issue with BΛ. Ex Hess-Divo 307 (8 June 2007), lot 1282; Sternberg XIV (24 May 1984), lot 147.The BΛ issue is among the rarest of Aspendos staters. Correct attribution of these is dependent upon a close reading of the text of many published collections, as coin wear and poor quality photos often make the more common BA issues appear to read BΛ (see SNG Copenhagen 215 and Izmir 4).
