IONIA. Uncertain Mint. EL Hekte (2.35 gms), ca. 600-550 B.C. NGC EF, Strike: 5/5 Surface: 5/5. cf. SNG Kayhan-715-8 (fractions); Weber-5718. Obverse: Bridled head of horse left; Reverse: Rough incuse square. Struck from a paler electrum than usually encountered, along with being a bit less refined in style, this beauty has a virtually flawless strike and elegant surfaces, and is quite possibly a somewhat later issue on account of the subtle differences stylistically. A bit of flan cracking is noted, but this Ionian product retains original luster and charm.
