CYCLADES, Kythnos. Circa 530/20-500 BC. Tetrobol (Silver, 4.06 g). Head of a boar to right. Rev. Rough incuse square with irregular sides. Sheedy 1. Traité II, I, 983, pl. XXVIII, 7. Toned, well struck and very attractive. Extremely fine.

This is one of the earliest coins of Kythnos and has a rather stylized but attractive head of a boar. Those struck in second quarter of the 5th century have a more realistic looking boar, though one that is perhaps less appealing.
