THESSALY, Kierion. 2nd half of the 4th century BC. Chalkous (Bronze, 14mm, 1.92 g 12). Youthful head to right, wearing taenia (Apollo?) Rev. ΚΙΕΡΙ / ΕΙΩΝ above and below thunderbolt; all within laurel wreath. Apparently unpublished. A fascinating little coin, seemingly completely unknown. With a slightly off-center obverse, but with a fine, dark green patina. About extremely fine.

This coin seems to fit well into the coinage of Kierion, specifically as a fraction to go with the fulminating Zeus issue in the previous lot.
