Lycia Perikles coin

A quick search on acsearch shows seven examples. This is quite rare but not extremely rare. 

EDIT: Found some more. There are around 40 on acsearch. Still not a very common coin.

 

 

Here is another triskeles from Lykia.

The condition is not bad, the legend legible, but unfortunately the horns of Pan are hardly recognizable. Nevertheless a collectible coin.

 

I changed my seach terms and found several more examples (about 40) on acsearch, which makes the coin more common, but no too common.

I don't think that they are so many and I think it will take a long time until a see another one

Coingrats on the fun little Greek bronze coin. I see this type at auction now and again, but haven't seen it listed as being related to the greatest Athenian nor was I aware he would've ever minted coins in his name. Very cool if so!

What is the tie in with Perikles? Was this from around the time he was ostracized?

*Edit, I Googled and found its some later guy with the same name. Derp

And as far as it being,  "worth it" is have to know what you paid. 

Here's a recent pick up from Lycia of mine:

Not bad at all! Bronze coins struck for the Lycian dynasts are seen less frequently than silver fractions. There was a massive hoard of 1/6 staters flooding on the market about four years ago. Back then was the time to get some interesting varieties for little money.
