KINGS of BITHYNIA. Nikomedes I(?). Circa 280-250 BC. Æ (19mm, 4.59 g, 12h). NIkaia mint. Laureate head of Apollo right / Boar standing right; spearhead above. Roma E-56, lot 444; otherwise unpublished. Black patina. Good VF. Extremely rare.

The obverse type is known on a bronze issue of Nikomedes I (cf. HGC 7, 611), while the reverse type is known for bronzes of Prousias II (cf. HGC 7, 632–3). It is possible that the present type is actually an issue of Nikomedes II, who succeeded Prousias II.
