ASIA MINOR, Uncertain. 5th century BC. AR Diobol(?) (1.10 g, 1h). Forepart of winged goat right / Facing panther’s head within incuse circle. Unpublished. VF, toned around devices, some porosity.

This interesting coin appeared on the market alongside a number of coins of western Asia Minor. The types, though, are unknown for any mint in this area. Most significant is the winged goat, an eastern type that would likely place this coin during the Achaemenid period in Asia Minor.
