Ionia, Phocaea. 1/6 Stater or Hekte
Ionia, Phocaea. 4th century BC. 1/6 Stater or Hekte, 2.55g. (11h). Obv: Cicada; seal to right. Rx: Four-part incuse square. Bodenstedt 55. This is an extremely rare issue with fewer than five recorded, none sharper or better centered than this. The vein design of the wings is extremely sharp and is a very accurate image of a living cicada, unlike the seal to its right which is simply a stylistic design. Struck in high relief. EF.
