|Excerpt||Corroborating information identified on few numismatic sites from Ukraine and Russia, on one hand, and on the Western numismatic markets, on the other, the author presents three batches of early silver coins of Istros (5th-4th century BC)|
discovered North of the Black Sea. A batch made up of 22 silver staters and 1 obol from Group II of issues of Istros appears to have been dispersed from a hoard found at the latest in October 2017 in the Kherson region, in Southern Ukraine. The coins have been identified in 2017-2018 on a numismatic site from Ukraine and / or in various sales of an auction house in Switzerland. The second batch includes 10 silver staters from Group II, part of a hoard discovered, most probably, in the Southern part of Bessarabia, before October 2014. Photos of these coins were posted on the website of the Numismatic Museum in Odessa. After they had spread, some of the coins were identified on different forums and on the umismatic market. The last batch comprises two silver staters from Group I posted on a numismatic forum in Russia. One of them weighs 8.12 g and has been struck with dies previously unregistered. The second is a published specimen that was sold in 2015 by a German auction house. The photos posted on the occasion, however, attest that this coin too originates from the North of the Black Sea.
