Pan, Evander, Antigonus Gonatas


This is RRC 19/2 as illustrated in Massa-Pairault’s 2011 piece on the Bolsena Mirror.  I agree one hundred percent that this is Lycaean Pan, less that it might represent Evander himself.

The prototype is likely to be Antigonus Gonatas’ tetradrachms which build on the iconography of Arcadian coinage.


The date of 275-270 that Crawford gives seems early…. Must look into evidence for its assignment.
