THRACO-MACEDONIAN TRIBES, Uncertain. Circa 500-480 BC. AR Stater (20mm, 7.28 g). Asyut 62–80; Peykov Type I, A0600 (Orreskioi); HPM pl. VI, 15 and 17-18; HGC 3, –; SNG ANS 980 (Orreskioi). Toned, porous. Good VF.

From the Jonathan P. Rosen Collection. Ex Berk BBS 200 (18 January 2017), lot 52.

The centaur-nymph motif was used by a number of Thraco-Macedonian tribes, and at least three tribes – the Orreskioi, Letaioi, and the Zaelioi – inscribed their ethnic on the obverse. The present coin, though, belongs to the quantity of unsigned issues that cannot yet be assigned to a particular tribe, although Peykov and the cataloger of the ANS sylloge assumed the issue was from the Orreskioi. Moreover, the obverse on this coin has a pellet border, which is not present on any of the signed issues.
