the most interesting is this one. Auctioneer's description : "EMPORION (Ampurias, Gerona). Mite. (Ar. 0.75g / 12mm). 5th century BC (ca.). Guadán 4; Amorós 4 . Anv: Protome of bearded androcephalic bull left. Rev: Geometrical incuse countermark. The obverse of this coin emulates the archaic mints of the Phocea polis (600-550 BC), later also imitated in the Gela polis in the south of the island of Sicily (500-450 BC)." Here is one of the Gela coins referred to The head does indeed look similar. I do not possess the 2 references above - Guadán and Amorós - can anyone help with these ? The coin is listed in ACIP (Ancient Coins of the Iberian Peninsula) as ACIP 2, with a rarity rating of R7 (6 or 7 examples known). ACIP notes "With an incuse reverse like that one shown on the pieces from Auriol, lately two types of these coins have been found in Catalonia, far from the Auriol finding and the Marseillais territory. Having found them all in Catalonia suggests that they are Emporitan issues " @Nicholas Molinari - I would appreciate your expert opinion. Comments welcome !
