Alabanda (BC 197-190) Tetradrachm485 viewsca 197-190/188 BC. AR Tetradrachm (16.70g). Struck as Antiocheia, under Antiochos III of Syria. Laureate head of Apollo left / [ΑΝΤ]ΙΟΧΕΩΝ, Pegasos springing right; ΤΙΜΟΚΩΝ (magistrate) below. Good VF. Rare.

Alabanda was situated in northern Caria on the river Marsyas, about 30 km from its confluence with the Maeander. The first coins known for the city are the issues struck in the name of Antiocheia in honour of Antiochus III of Syria, during his attempt to recover Asia Minor in the early 2nd century (cf. Houghton, SC p. 352). After his defeat at the battle of Magnesia in 190 BC, Alabanda reverted to its old name and issued tetradrachms with magistrate names as well as Alexander-type tetradrachms, but it was not until about 167 that the bulk of the 'dated' A-B coins were issued (cf. SNG Helsinki 1-5). For an in-depth analysis into this coinage, see N. Waggoner, 'A new wrinkle in the Hellenistic coinage of Antioch/Alabanda' in Kraay-Morkholm Essays, 1989, pp. 284-290.

Karia Uncertain (BC 500-490) Stater26 viewsca 500-490 BC. AR Stater (19mm, 14.54g). Two dolphins right within linear square border / Two rectangular incuses. VF, toned, light porosity. Extremely rare issue with both dolphins right, only the von Aulock specimen published.

This coinage had originally been attributed to Poseidion on Karpathos, but Cahn’s analysis of the issues bearing an inscription, πos, has conclusively shown that this legend is not an ethnic and cannot point to a mint in Poseidion. It is most likely struck from a mint on the coast of Caria or one of the other mints that used this form of double rectangular incuse: Ialysos, Kamiros, or Lindos.
