Lycia. Uvug. c. 480-450 BC. Sixth, 1.17g. Lycia, Uncertain Dynasty, c. 480-460 BC. Obv: Boar’s head left. Rx: Protome of a man-headed bull facing left within incuse square. EF.

The reverse image is clearly reminiscent of the coins of the Lycian dynast Uvug. The weight standard is hard to define, since the weights are somewhat erratic (along with the von Aulock coin, cf. Peus 372, 2002, lot 361). It might be the light stater (c. 8.0-8.6 g), but actually this standard is known from 460 BC onwards only; cf. O. Morkholm and G. Neumann, Die lykischen Munzlegenden (Gottingen 1978), p. 5 f. (Gemini VI, 224)
