Lot 2165       Greek Silver & Bronze

Estimate $220

PHOENICIA, Tyre, Trajan, (A.D. 98-117), silver tetradrachm (15.26 grams), issued 103-109, obv. Trajan laureate head to right, supported by eagle standing right, club behind, around AYTOKP KAIC NEP TPAIANOC CEB GEPM DAK, rev. laureate bust of Melqarth to right, lion skin knotted at neck, around DHMAPX EX YPATE E, (cf.S.1088, Wruck 150, BMC 3). Very fine and scarce.

The issue could also be assigned (by Wruck), to Seleucis and Pieria for Antioch ad Orentem mint. Wruck believes the reverse type to be Herakles and not Melqarth. The reverse legend indicates the no year of the tribunician power and five times consul and this corresponds to A.D. 103-109.
