THESSALY, Perrhaiboi. First half of the 4th century BC. Dichalkon (Bronze, 18mm, 518 g 12). Laureate head of Apollo to right; behind head, uncertain monogram. Rev. ΠΕΡΡΑΙΒΩΝ Head of nymph to right, wearing sphendone, earring and necklace; before her, Α Λ; behind, Δ Σ. Rogers 437 and fig. 245 (same dies, but wrongly identified as Phalanna). Traité IV 581, pl. CCXCIII, 4. A particularly nice example, boldly struck and with an olive-green patina. Extremely fine.

A note from BCD: Rogers has another of these coins listed and illustrated in his figure 237, this time correctly, under Perrhaiboi. It is apparently struck from the same dies as the one illustrated in his figure 245.
