I’m making some space in my collection and will offload a number of coins that don’t quite fit in there anymore. I’d love to see them find a good new home!


Here, I’m offering a slightly rugged but historically fascinating imitation of a Macedonian prototype (SNG Copenhagen 1298). These coins can be dated to the 2nd to 1st centuries BC and are typically found in southeastern Bulgaria. They are ususally overstruck on Greek coins. There is some scholarly debate about who produced them. Prokopov attributes them to the (probably) Germanic Bastarnae tribe, while Malloy argues they were made by the Celtic Serdi tribe.


This is the full attribution:


Eastern Celts: Bastarnae or Serdi?, AE18, overstruck on Greek coin, 2nd–1st century BC, southeastern Bulgaria. Obv: head of Strymon degraded to a knob, (die break). Rev: ornamented trident. 20mm, 6.50g. Ref: imitating SNG Copenhagen 1298; see Pannov: Koine (2013), pp. 191–2; Macdonald: Overstruck (2009), pp. 99–114.


I’m asking 20$ plus shipping. PayPal Friends&Family is preferred, TransferWise also works for me. Attractive swap proposals are welcome, too!


I live in Germany and will ship from there. Shipping is what DHL charges me:

To the US: 10$ without tracking / 14$ tracked

To other EU countries: 5$ without tracking / 8$ tracked

To Germany: 2$ without tracking / 4$ tracked
