Aspendos was a Greek colony on the West coast of Anatolia (Turkey). This is the famous scene that shows games, similar to the Olympics, held in that area. There are several varieties of these but all I have for a reference is Sear [Asia & Africa] and I believe the closest example there is S 5387. The obverse side is the one with the wrestlers. This type should be wrestler on left grasps w/ right hand his opponents left leg and with left punches his stomach; on the right the wrestler grasps his opponents arms, but it's not all that clear here. The reverse side with slinger has the longer legend behind [EΣTF]EΔII[VΣ] (magistrate name upward to left and a triskeles in field before; slinger in throwing stance right, triskeles to right, all within pelleted square border.
This one has very nice style and preservation. This stater was struck between 410 - 385 B.c. and is about 10.9 gm. silver. S 5387; B.M.C. 19.95, 15; SNG Paris 105; SNG von Aulock 4565; BMC 35.
