I've found it to be a difficult few months for coins. Competition seems to be really fierce and I've usually found it wiser to stay out. Or so I tell myself. Here is the latest acquisition to share, a "Greek" tetradrachm. It weighs 17.15g (Attic Standard) and is 25mm wide. Likely struck between 320-300 BCE. This coin was struck in Sicily by the Carthaginians, indicating that it predates the first Punic War. It was also the last of the Siculo-Punic tetradrachms, as the Carthaginian defeat in the First Punic War resulted in them ceding Sicily to the Romans. The Punic inscription below the horse head is believed to translate as "People of the Camp", which is now believed to refer to ancient Entella. This tetradrachm was likely intended to pay mercenaries who were accustomed to being paid with Greek coinage, as attested to the usage of the Attic weight standard. The finest dies of this series were probably engraved by Greeks employed or captured by the Carthaginians. The obverse bears the image of Herakles/Melqart wearing a lion skin headdress, likely inspired by the coinage of Alexander the Great. The reverse has a horse's head and a palm tree, clearly identifying it as a Carthaginian issue. The palm tree is known as "Phonix" in Greek, which is a reference to the term Phoenician. This tetradrachm thus exhibits a fascinating combination of Greek and Punic symbols. Please share any related coins you may have.
