ΤΡ - ΙΚ Forepart of horse to right, turned slightly towards the viewer; all within shallow incuse square. Apparently unpublished
. . A lovely coin, of unusually fine style. Nicely toned. Extremely fine.
This coin is clearly slightly later than the preceding lot. On that coin, we have a rather cool, early Classical head, while this one is reminiscent of the early issues of the Chalkidian League.
