MACEDON, Chalkidian League. Circa 383-379. Tetradrachm (Silver, 14.57 g 6), Olynthos. Laureate head of Apollo to left Rev. ΧΑΛΚΙΔΕΩΝ Kithara with seven strings. Gulbenkian 420 var. Robinson & Clement Group M. With an elegant, boyish head of Apollo. Minor marks, otherwise, extremely fine.

The series of Chalkidian League tetradrachms in this sale is a particularly attractive one. The heads of Apollo run from the severity of the end of 5th century to a full-blown late Classical handsomeness. Those late Apollo heads are what served s the model for those on the gold staters of Philip II.
