Av.: Head of Athena, helmeted, l.
Rv.: Forepart of Pegasos r., below, letter lambda.
Ref.: Baldwin in AJN 53 (1924), pl. 2, 5-8, BoC 8, 1/2, 1983, p. 17.
FAKE – Struck. The obverse copies Lampsacene staters as A. Baldwin, AJN 53 (1924), pl. 2, 5-8. The counterfeit shows a shallow round incuse on the reverse, genuine staters have an incuse square, lightly indicated. The letter lambda is totally wrong: throughout the long series gold staters of Lampsacus are always anepigraphic. The weight, lastly, is too low, it should be ca. 8,2-8,4 g.
