SKYTHIA. Geto-Dacians. Koson. AV Stater, Mid 1st Century B.C. NGC GEM UNCIRCULATED. RPC-1, 1701A; HGC-3.2, 2049. Obverse: Roman consul accompanied by two lictors advancing left; monogram to left; Reverse: Eagle, holding wreath, standing left on scepter. Though previously attributed to a Thracian king by the name of Koson and believed to allude to the denarius issued by M. Junius Brutus, more recent scholarship points toward an attribution to the Geto-Dacians, not Thrace, and somewhat before the referenced issue of Brutus. Sharp and lustrous, this example stands as an excellent representation of the type.
