The Hekte denomination
The Hekte - or sixth-stater - is an ancient Lydian coin denomination which was struck in electrum.

The Hekte is common enough, but seen less often than the larger trite, though also typically less expensive because of the smaller size.

Lydian Hektes featured a lions head, but hektes from Greek cities have a wider variety of imagery.
