Lot 53-007. Thracian Kingdom. Lysimachos. As King, 306-281 B.C. AR drachm. Uncertain mint, struck 297-281B.C. Very Rare.

Thracian Kingdom. Lysimachos. As King, 306-281 B.C. AR drachm (17.6 mm, 4.29 g, 11 h). Uncertain mint, struck 297-281B.C. Diademed head of the deified Alexander right, wearing horn of Ammon / BAΣIΛEΩΣ ΛYΣIMAXOΣ, Athena Nikephoros seated left, left arm resting on shield, spear behind; thyrsos to inner left, star on throne. Thompson -; Müller -. aVF. Very Rare.

Unpublished in standard references. The most likely mint for this issue is Alexandria Troas, whose early issues under Lysimachos had a similar star under the throne with a secondary control mark in the inner left field. Although drachms are unknown for all of these issues, the style is similar to the tetradrachms. Another of this type was sold by CNG 75, lot 118 for $650.
