Pamphylia, Perga. Tetradrachm
Pamphylia, Perga. c. 255-241 BC, Year 6. Tetradrachm, 15.26g. (12h). Obv: Laureate head of Artemis right, bow and quiver behind neck. Rx: APTEMIńO” / –EP√AIA” Artemis standing left holding wreath and scepter, at her feet large star, above the star date C=6. Apparently unpublished from Year 6, and with star replacing the normal stag at Artemis' feet. Old collection toning. VF.

This coin apparently belongs to Seyrig's Group 1, which he dates to c. 255-241 BC, Revue Numismatique 1963, pp. 49-50. Seyrig records tetradrachms of Years 2, 5, 9-11, and 13, but none of Year 6 like ours. All of Seyrig's examples show a stag at Artemis' feet, except his no. 21, where a sphinx replaces the stag. Seyrig knew no coins with a star replacing the stag, though on his no. 18a a star appears in the outer right field, behind Artemis.
