Public Commentary
Laut Kommentar RPC I Nr. 1734 soll auf der Rückseite womöglich eine Leier (lyra) dargestellt sein, womit der Kopf dem Apollon zugewiesen werden könnte. Es sei aber auch eine Doppellinie denkbar, hier in Analogie zur einfachen Linie bei RPC I Nr. 1735. Der Gegenstempel mit dem sechstrahligen Stern auf der Vorderseite wird Imbros zugeschrieben und erscheint auf Münzen augusteischer Zeit. https://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/coins/1/1734 According to the commentary in RPC I No. 1734, a lyre may be shown on the back, which could be used to interpret the head as Apollo. However, a double line is also conceivable, here in analogy to the simple line at RPC I No. 1735. The countermark with the sixrayed star on the front is attributed to Imbros and appears on coins from the Augustan period.
