Description

Phoenicia, Arados (Arwad) AR. Attic standard. Circa 440-420 BC. Marine deity (Ba'al Arwad), comprised of male torso with archaic-style hair and beard, and scaled ketos-like lower body with dorsal fin ending in forked tail, swimming to right, elaborate galley to the right,

This remarkable and highly important coin represents a significant addition to the corpus of the coinage of Arados. Betlyon's 'Third Aradian Series', which he dated to c. 400-380 BC, comprised only fractional silver coinage - namely, tetrobols, diobols and obols.
