Comments On This Specimen: This rare bronze issue was traditionally attributed to Lamia in Thessaly due to the hydra reverse type, which is found on the early silver of that city (see Georgiou, Mint, 1-3). None of the published examples have a clear ethnic. However, two examples in a private collection have enough of the ethnic visible to confirm that the issuing regions are called Apollonia. As all of the examples with a known find spot have been found in Macedon, it is nearly certain that they were issued by one of the three Apollonia cities of Macedon. As yet, however, there is too little evidence to ascribe these coins to one of the cities in particular.
The rarest of the rare: one of the only two known specimens. Letters visible next to the hydra. This specimen is so rare, the city that minted it has yet to be discovered.
Perfect striking on both observe and the reverse. Hydra fully visible! The finest known, high relief. A gem in hands.
Choice Very Fine. Very Rare
An amazing, large flan tetradrachm. Basically in MS condition, as struck. One of a kind Greek masterpiece coin. Small die-crack in lower field, but only adds unique aged- appearance and authenticity. Beautiful
Incredible example of Apsendos AR Stater, nearly uncirculated luster and toning.
