CNG 112, Lot: 4. Estimate $400.

GAUL, Massalia. Circa 275-225 BC. AR Drachm (15mm, 3.74 g, 10h). Heavy standard. Wreathed head of Artemis right / Lion standing right; MΣΣA (sic) above. Cf. F&P DRM-11; cf. Depeyrot, Marseille 11; SNG Copenhagen –. Deep cabinet tone, small cut on edge. Good VF.

From the Baldwin Maull Collection, purchased from Numismatic Fine Arts (Edward Gans), 1963 or 1964.

The style of this issue is closer to that found on the subsequent drachms struck on the light standard (cf. F&P DRM-16), but the weight clearly places this issue within the earlier heavy standard issues. It is possible that this issue represents the latest among the heavy issues. For other heavy drachms of identical style to the present coin, see Hess-Leu 31, lot 8 and NFA 10, lot 1.
