Lot description:

Greco-Baktrian Kingdom, Eukratides I Megas AR Drachm. Circa 170-145 BC. Diademed and draped bust to right / The Dioskouroi on horses prancing to right, each holding spear and palm; ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ above, ΕYΚΡΑΤΙΔΟΥ below, monogram to lower right, A (mark of value) to upper left. Bopearachchi 2C; Mitchiner 169a; SNG ANS 439-41; HGC 12, 135. 4.22g, 19mm, 12h.

Good Extremely Fine. Scarce.

In light of the discovery of a previously unknown pentadrachm of Eukratides (Roma XXV, 571) bearing the denominational mark E (=5), it seems inescapable that the Δ present on an issue of tetradrachms (see Roma XXV, 572) and the A on this specimen must be marks of value (Δ=4, A =1).

Estimate: 750 GBP
