A note from BCD: ASW should either down date this coin or update lots 1133-1134, above, by a quarter of a century; their reverses are by the same hand. Personally I prefer the first option. Actually ASW thinks BCD is quite right, so the user of this catalogue should cross out the date given here and replace it by c. 370-360. It would have been even easier to just change the date in the catalogue but BCD wanted to write one of his notes.
