Asyut 422, seltman GROUP P, and the imitation of attic coins

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The ‘Attic’ tetradrachm, Asyut 422, was identified by Price and Waggoner as a contemporary imitation. Seltman placed a die-linked example in his group p. His arguments for the attribution of this group to a mint set up by an Athenian colony at Chalcis on Euboea are challenged. Compositional analyses using x-ray fluorescence spectrometry are presented, which indicate that Asyut 422 was not made of silver from Laurion.
