IONIA, Ephesos. Circa 123-119 BC. AV Stater (19.5mm, 8.42 g, 12h). Draped bust of Artemis right, wearing stephanos and single-pendant earring, hair drawn together and tied in the back, bow and quiver over shoulder / Cult statue of Artemis of Ephesos facing, arms outstretched horizontally at sides, fillet hanging from each; E-Φ flanking its head, thymiaterion to inner right. Jenkins, Hellenistic, pl. B, 6 = BM 1896,0601.67 = Montagu I 567 (same dies); Head p. 69, 2–6 var. (control mark); Gulbenkian 985 var. (same); Münzen und Medaillen AG 41, lot 191 (same dies). A few light marks, slightly off center and minor die wear on obverse. Good VF.

This coin is struck from the same obverse die as two other staters that Jenkins was able to securely date to 122/1 BC and 121/0 BC, so he assumed that the present issue, with thymiaterion, must belong to the years adjacent to those (see Jenkins, Hellenistic, p. 184).
