Commentary


Ce type de statère n'est pas très impressionnant, frappé sur un flan court. Il rappelle les traditionnels statères suessions ou encore les statères à l'œil des Rémes ; c'est pourtant une monnaie très rare. L'exemplaire BN. 8018 illustre le Traité de S. Scheers en 1977 et continue d'illustrer le Nouvel Atlas en 2002 ! Ce statère avec la particularité d'avoir le cheval à gauche constitue la variété 5 du monnayage d'or à "l'œil" des Suessions.
