Sunburst Little Horse. c.20BC-AD5? Gold quarter stater. 13mm. 1.19g. Wreath motif, sunburst in centre, crescent ‘eyes’ below./ Triple-tailed horse right, pelletal sun ring above, ringed-pellets around, s-shape (small animal) below. ABC 2009, VA 1010, BMC 2942-46, S 375. Good EF, mint condition, dazzling golden gold, fabulous wreath (not usually as well displayed), well centred horse. A spectacular specimen, best we’ve had. VERY RARE

This is unquestionably the finest specimen we’ve encountered, with a far sharper obverse than the examples illustrated in ABC, Van Arsdell and BMC. Found near where it was minted.
