Kaunos, Caria, c. 2nd Century B.C.

A puzzling tiny bronze. The obverse style does not match the coins pictured by standard references, while the ethnic is written inverted and reversed. Perhaps it is an imitative of the usual Alexander the Great / cornucopia issue, SNG Cop 184.

Bronze AE 9, SNG von Aulock -, SNG Keckman -, SNG Cop -, BMC Caria -, aVF, weight 0.840g, maximum diameter 9.2mm, die axis 270o, obverse head right; reverse cornucopia, X - K (reversed) across fields; EXTREMELY RARE.
