SICILY, Akragas. Circa 510-495 BC. AR Didrachm (22mm, 8.86 g, 8h). Sea eagle standing left; retrograde AKRAC-ANTOΣ (partially retrograde) around / Crab. Westermark, Coinage, Period I, Group I, – (O19/R18 [unlisted die combination]); HGC 2, 87; SNG ANS 913 (same rev. die); SNG Copenhagen 23 (same rev. die); McClean 2028 (same rev. die). Toned, some marks under tone. Good VF. From the earliest issue of coinage at Akragas, and only the second coin known from this obverse die; Westermark records a single example, from a 1923 Sambon sale.

From the Weise Collection. Ex G. Hirsch 267 (5 May 2010), lot 53; Numismatica Ars Classica 46 (2 April 2008), lot 177; LHS 95 (25 October 2005), lot 489.

Westermark’s reverse die R18 is recorded with her obverses O18 and O20, so its pairing here with O19 is not surprising.

The final winners of all Triton XXIV lots will be determined during the live online sale that will be held on 19-20 January 2021. This lot is in Session Two, which begins 19 January 2021 at 2 PM ET.
