Sear Greek II 4956. SNG Danish V Caria 591-593. SNG von Aulock 2361-2365. SNG Finland Keckman I 276. SNG Turkey I Kayhan 874-879. Minted at Halikarnassos, Caria, now Bodrum on the southwestern coast of modern Turkey. We spell his name "Mausolos," but he spelled it with a double S and double L: MAYΣΣΩΛΛO Take a look at the legend: From Wikipedia under "Mausoleum": "The word derives from the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus (near modern-day Bodrum in Turkey), the grave of King Mausolus, the Persian satrap of Caria, whose large tomb was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World." The tomb was a massive structure 145 feet high, possibly still extant in the 12th century but in ruins by the 15th and since then the building materials have been recycled and reliefs removed, so there is very little remaining. The wikipedia article shows the site and pictures of many of the extant sculptural elements now in various museums. This coin is a drachm. There are tetradrachms of the same design. If anyone has one, we'd love to see it. Post anything related!
