Sold for $1500. This amount does not include the buyer’s fee.

LYDIA, Sala. temp. Marcus Aurelius, AD 161-180. Æ (35mm, 30.00 g, 6h). Dama(s), archon for the first time. ΔHMOC, laureate head of youthful Demos right / ЄΠI ΔAMA A-PXONTOC A CAΛHNΩN, Zeus Ladraundos on horseback right, holding double-axe. Unpublished in the standard references, but cf. Martin, Demos p. 115, 7 for similar. Good VF, green-brown surfaces, minor cleaning marks.

Martin’s seemingly unique entry no. 7 for Sala (= Triton XIV, lot 732) features the same types but has the ethnic on the obverse rather than reverse.
