44-42 BC Gold Stater Koson Thrace

44-42 BC Gold Stater Koson Thrace Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

from
£1,450.00
Rare and fascinating Greek gold Stater struck in the mid first century BC. The obverse shows four robed figures, walking left, two holding spears across their shoulders. The word ‘KOΣΩN’ appears below. There are multiple theories on the origin of these coins. Either Koson is an unrecorded Thracian king who imitated contemporary Roman coinage or these Staters were struck in Thrace in the name of Marcus Junius Brutus whose monogram is claimed to be the symbol that appears before the walking figures. The reverse shows an eagle, its wings spread, holding a wreath in one set of talons and standing on a sceptre. Weight: 8.38 grams. Approximate diameter: 19.3 millimetres. Grade: Previously graded by ICG as MS-62, removed from its holder. Roman Provincial Coinage 1701.
