BRUTTIUM, Rhegion. Circa 415/0-387 BC. Tetradrachm (Silver, 16.82 g 6). Lion’s mask facing. Rev. ΡΗΓΙΝΟΝ Laureate head of Apollo to right, with olive sprig behind. Herzfelder 86. HN III 2496. A splendid piece, struck in high relief and lightly toned. Good extremely fine.


From the Collection Z, Switzerland..

The heads of Apollo at Rhegium, with their hair carefully bound up and wreathed, are rather reminiscent of those from Olynthos. This is a very pleasing example with a head of severe yet attractive style.
