- For Sale!!! Serious inquires only! This is an Pegasus Electrum Stater when found it typically in worn grades and off center.
Mysia Lampsacus Pegasus Electrum Stater NGC CHXF 4x5.
The obverse illustrates the forepart of Pegasus, facing left, with wings curving behind. The image is surrounded by a frame composed of vines adorned with leaves and clusters of grapes. The appearance of the mythical winged stallion is symbolic of the wisdom and freedom of the citizens of Lampsacus. The reverse features a quadripartite incuse square, commonly seen because each coin was hand hammered. This is a well detailed and centered example in high relief. Beautiful in your hands.
Lampsacus was a flourishing city in the ancient region of Mysia, located on the eastern side of the Dardanelles, its wealth credited to the production of high quality wines. As was common for ancient civilizations, imagery struck upon coinage celebrated the source of the city's wealth and prosperity. This Lampsacus stater was struck from electrum (an alloy of gold and silver found in riverbeds) c. 500-450 BC with a diameter of approximately 20 mm and a weight of 15.21 grams.
