Triton XV, Lot: 1082. Estimate $3000.
Sold for $5500. This amount does not include the buyer’s fee.

CARTHAGE. Circa 350-320 BC. AV Stater (18mm, 9.11 g, 11h). Head of Tanit left, wearing wreath of grain ears, triple-pendant earring, and necklace with seven pendants / Horse standing right on double exergue line; three pellets to lower right. Jenkins & Lewis group IIIb-c; MAA 4; SNG Copenhagen -. Good VF, struck from worn dies. Rare issue.


This coin has elements of both group IIIb and IIIc. The obverse style is similar to both, as is the double exergue line. However, on the reverse, the configuration of the dots is similar to IIIc, but the circle in the upper field is missing, suggesting that this piece is from an intermediate issue between IIIb and IIIc.
