Catalogue references :
Predigree :
Cet exemplaire provient très certainement du trésor de Myndos de 1996 (CH. IX, 522) et de la vente Hirsch 198 des 11-13 février 1998, n° 264


Obverse legend : ANÉPIGRAPHE.
Obverse description : Tête laurée de Sérapis à droite.


Reverse description : Coiffe d’Isis posée sur deux épis ; au-dessous, un astre à huit rais.
Reverse legend : M-UNDIw/N/ Q-EODOTOS.

Malgré la rareté du type, nous n’avons pas relevé de liaison de coin pertinente. Le coin de droit est très proche des exemplaires 30 et 31 du classement de Zabel et Meadows, n° 30 et 31, pl. 42. En revanche, la césure du revers pour le magistrat ne semble pas signalée.

Historical background


(2nd - 1st century BC)

Myndos, a Dorian colony, was reputed to have been founded by the Trojans. The city was located about twenty kilometers from Halicarnassus on the coast. Coinage would not begin until the 2nd century BC and came under the influence of the Egyptians who had occupied the region.
