LESBOS, Mytilene. Circa 377-326 BC. EL Hekte – Sixth Stater (10.5mm, 2.55 g, 12h). Wreathed head of Dionysos right / Head of satyr facing, bald; star to upper right; within linear square. Bodenstedt Em. 90; HGC 6, 1016 corr. (symbols sometimes on rev.). Die rust and light scratches on obverse, die break on reverse. Good VF. Well centered. Very rare with star symbol, only two noted by Bodenstedt, three in CoinArchives.

From the Weise Collection. Ex Lanz 141 (26 May 2008), lot 180 (hammer €1250).

Bodenstedt’s emission 90 encompasses a wide array of reverses. While always depicting a satyr, he sometimes has hair, but usually without, and sometimes there are subsidiary symbols in the margins around the satyr’s head.
