MYSIA, Kyzikos. Circa 550-450 BC. EL Stater (18mm, 16.13 g). Winged creature, with the head and torso of a horned dolphin, the abdomen, arms, and legs of a nude human, swimming/flying left, holding in its right hand the tail of a tunny right / Quadripartite incuse square. Cf. Von Fritze I 79 (unlisted denomination); Greenwell –; Boston MFA –; SNG BN –; BMC –; Gulbenkian –; Jameson –; Kraay & Hirmer 699 = Prinkipo 57; Roma XI, lot 407. A couple of minor edge splits. VF. Well centered and struck. Extremely rare, one of five known.

From the Jonathan P. Rosen Collection. Ex Triton XX (10 January 2017), lot 226 (hammer $37,500).

The figure appears to be swimming: the legs are kicking, the right hand is raised behind the head and about to be plunged back into the water, and the tunny is trailing to the right due to the rapid movement.
