MYSIA. Cyzicus (?).
Av.: Female head to r. wearing corn wreath.
Rv.: Quadripartite incuse square.
BoC: 17/2, 1992/3, p.17.
FAKE – This curiosity is surely intended to be a stater of Cyzicus despite the absence of the tunny fish. The obverse copies Arethusa heads as are found on Syracusan bronzes (see SNG ANS 526-529) and gold drachms struck by Hiketas (as SNG ANS 776-781).
