Notes:     Sale: CNG 81, Lot: 511 From the D. Alighieri Collection.From at least the early 1900s, this type has been traditionally assigned to Memnon of Rhodes, but there is no evidence to substantiate such a specific attribution. The style of the obverse links it to the “map” issues of the Achaemenid satraps in Ionia, which have been dated to circa 350-333 BC.
