THRACO-MACEDONIAN REGION, Berge. Circa 525-480 BC. AR Stater (19mm, 9.76 g). Ithyphallic satyr standing right, grasping hand of nymph fleeing right; pellets above, to left, and to right / Quadripartite incuse square divided diagonally. Smith Group 5; Peykov A0020; HPM pl. VIII, 4; HGC 3, 531 (“Lete”). Attractive deep iridescent tone. Near EF. Good metal for issue.

This coinage has previously been attributed to Lete and Siris, but S. Psoma has persuasively argued against both of these attributions, and suggests that the city of Berge is the most likely in light of the historical and numismatic evidence. (See S. Psoma, “The ‘Lete’ Coinage Reconsidered” in Agoranomia.)
