|Type||Standard circulation coin|
|Value||1 Stater = 3 Drachm (3)|
Square incuse divided into six triangular segments
Note from NCG: The attribution of this type has long been controversial. Seltman, followed by the catalogers of Kunstfreund, attributed the type as the very first issue of Athens, struck on the Aeginetan rather than the Attic standard. Similar staters which feature the amphora with an added dolphin have been attributed to Karthaia in Keos (BMC Crete pg. 90, 17), and the present type has sometimes been attributed to that island. An attribution to Andros, which employed the amphora as a type on its later coinage, seems more likely but remains uncertain. The island was famous for its wine, to which all its coin types relate.
