Product Description

PERSIA, ACHAEMENID AR 1/48 SIGLOS, 455 - 340 B.C.E.

Carradice type IV type, Very Fine, 4.5mm, .14 gram
 
Obverse: Persian King running with drawn bow and spear

Reverse: Incuse punch

VERY RARE! We could not find an exact match published. This coin is as small as they get. We found very few examples offered but virtually always with ONLY a bust visible. This die showing the body of the king, as well as the bow was clearly struck for the demonination. An intriguing issue and especially interesting for a specialist studying weights and denominations.
