Aspendos, Pamphylia (unknown magistrate)


[B]Aspendos, Pamphylia (unknown, magistate; 200-100 BC.) AE 17[/B] [u]Obv[/u]: Athena in crested helmet, facing right. [u]Rev[/u]: Slinger, facing right;A-PO monogram flanking slinger. [u]Attribution[/u]: Imhoof Kl.M.II 316,21; SNG France 140 [u]Provenance[/u]: ex. Frascatius Ancients, 4.30.06; ex. Munzen & Medallen (lot#1168) [u]Weight[/u]: 3.98 gm [u]Maximal Diameter[/u]: 17.04 mm [u]Axis[/u]: 12 [u]Note[/u]: Previously misattributed to Selge, Pisidia in BMC and Head's Historia Numorum, these PO monogram shield issues are now recognized as being native to Aspendos. Though somewhat speculative the PO monogram on these AE issues, as well as on AR staters of the period, likely represent an unknown Pamphylian magistrate. There is a whole series of Aspendos bronze issues with letters and monograms, the majority of which there is a corresponding stater with the same letters. It is reasonably safe to assume that since with have the same initials on bronze and silver issues, the two probably originated from the same mint (B.P. Murphy, personal communication). GK220
