CYPRUS, Salamis. Evagoras I. Circa 411-374 BC. Stater (Silver, 10.74 g 9). E u fa go ro, (in Cypriot syllabic script). Head of bearded Herakles to right, wearing lion skin headress. Rev. Ba si le fo se eu (in combined Cypriot and Greek letters). He-goat with long horns and beard seated right on dotted ground line; above, grain of barley; to right, letter. BMC 55. Masson & Amandry 36, Ba. Bold and well struck. Some traces of corrosion, and minor scratch on the reverse, otherwise, about extremely fine.

While struck on a tight flan, this is much better than the usual issues of Evagoras. It is sharply struck and in high relief, without areas of flatness or defects.
