IONIA, Teos. Circa 510-475 BC. AR Drachm (5.81 g). Griffin seated right, raising foreleg / Quadripartite incuse square. Balcer group XX, 37b corr. (“A37”/P59); SNG Copenhagen 1433. Good VF.

Balcer lists coins 37a and 37b as both being struck from the same obverse die, A37. An examination of his illustrated examples, however, clearly shows that this was in error.
