THESSALY, Homolion. Circa 350 BC. Dichalkon (Bronze, 18mm, 6.48 g 5). Bearded head of Philoktetes to right, wearing conical pilos as last. Rev. ΟΜΟΛ[Ι]-ΚΟΝ Serpent coiled to right. Rogers 262. SNG Copenhagen 71. Rare. Obverse slightly off center, otherwise, a lovely coin with a fine dark brown patina. Extremely fine.

This coin is probably rather later in the 4th century than the previous piece. The variant spelling of the city ethnic also shows that the two coins come from different issues.
