LEVANTINE REGION. Uncertain, circa 1st to 3rd centuries AD. Dedicatory Plaquette (Lead, 20x42 mm, 9.18 g). The Tyche of Antioch, turreted and veiled, seated facing on rock; to upper left and right, two Nikai presenting wreaths; to lower left, palm frond; below Tyche, river-god Orontes facing, head to right. Rev. Blank except for decorative pellet-in-annulets. A lovely piece of attractive style. Scuff on Tyche's face and with a flan fault, otherwise, good very fine.


This is likely a dedicatory plaquette connected to the cult of the Tyche of Antioch, whose famous cult statue was the work of the sculptor Eutychides, a pupil of Lysippus.
