KINGS of THRACE. Lysimachos. 305-281 BC. AV Stater (8.44 g, 12h). Pella or Byzantion(?) mint. Struck mid 3rd century BC. Diademed head of the deified Alexander right, with horn of Ammon / Athena seated left, holding Nike, left arm resting on shield, spear behind; no markings. Pozzi 2622. Good VF, small test cut at edge on reverse. ($1500)

While the Pozzi specimen, attributed to Pella, is the only published example without any markings, the style of this piece is more similar to that of early issues from Byzantion.
