Istros was a Milesian colony that issued a large quantity of silver coinage, and was an important commercial center (400-350 B.C.).


AR Stater. OB: Two young male heads facing, side by side, one upright, the other inverted. Rx: Sea-eagle stg.l. on dolphin l., which it attacks with its beak (see Sinope on the Black Sea). This unusual obverse type has been intrepreted as representing the Dioskouroi, the rising/setting sun, or the two branches of the Danube river (Ister).


Sear lists these as S1669 and weighing c.5.75 gm.; this one is about the right diameter but weighs only 4.8 gm., this one does not have the 'A' under the tail of the sea eagle. I think it's a later issue from the 3rd-2nd Century B.C. - Please feel free to comment and ammend this attribution.
