MYSIA, Kyzikos. Circa 450-330 BC. EL Stater (18mm, 16.01 g). Hoplite, nude but for Corinthian helmet, shield on left arm, right arm extended forward, standing in a semi-crouched stance right on ground line; to right, tunny downward / Quadripartite incuse square. Von Fritze I 119; Greenwell 91; Boston MFA 1497; SNG BN 265 = de Luynes 2452; BMC 78; Gulbenkian 620; Jameson 1404. Toned, minor edge split, tiny flan flaws. VF.

From the Jonathan P. Rosen Collection. Ex Roma XIV (21 September 2017), lot 219.

The hoplite is about to begin the foot race in which the runners carried their military equipment (see A. Milavic, “Hoplitodromos: The hoplite race in armor served as a vehicle to train for war” in The Celator 5.8 [August 1991]). Agnes Baldwin Brett, in BMFA, suggests that type here could be a “copy of Kritios’ statue erected on the Akropolis at Athens, representing Epicharinos, Athenian hoplite runner victorious in Olympic games.”
