RemarksRemarks: "overstruck on a stater from an uncertain mint in southern Asia Minor (see CNG 109, lot 190 [an unpublished issue]). The presence of the overstrike here suggests why the CNG 109 piece was not previously published--perhaps it was a limited issue that was largely overstruck at a later time (likely a significant reason we often find coins of previously unknown types in archaic hoards"
