PONTOS. Kingdom of Pontos. Mithradates VI, 120-63 B.C. AV Stater, Kallatis Mint, ca. 88-86 B.C. ICG AU 58. Callatay p. 140. Struck in the names and types of Lysimachos of Thrace. Obverse: Diademed head of the deified Alexander right, with horn of Ammon; Reverse: BAΣΙΛΕΩΣ / ΛΥΣIMAXOY, Athena seated left on throne, holding Nike and spear; Cω to inner left, KAΛ on throne; in exergue, ornate trident left. A somewhat crude strike as is often encountered for this type, the present piece offers some hints of brilliance in the protected areas as well as very little evidence of any actual wear.
