THESSALY, Perrhaiboi. Circa 450-430 BC. Trihemiobol (Silver, 1.36 g 12). Thessalian cavalryman, wearing petasos and chlamys and holding two spears, riding horse walking to left. Rev. Π-Ε-Ρ-Α (retrograde) Athena (?), draped, seated to left on high-backed chair, holding crested, Corinthian helmet in both hands. BMC 3. Moustaka 46 var. Rare. Beautifully toned and struck on a broad flan. About extremely fine.

A note from BCD: This trihemiobol, without the altar under the horse on the obverse, probably belongs to an earlier issue that was discontinued to be replaced by the much more common type with the altar.
