THESSALY, Phalanna. First half of the 4th century BC. Chalkous (Bronze, 12mm, 2.12 g 1). Youthful male head to right, perhaps Peloros (?). Rev. ΦΑΛΑΝΝΑΙ - ΩΝ Head of nymph to right, wearing simple earring, necklace, and with her hair bound in a sakkos. Papaevangelou-Genakos 7 var. Rare. Struck in high relief and with a dark green patina. Nearly extremely fine.

A note from BCD: This smaller denomination, quite distinct from Rogers fig. 246, is definitely rarer than the large coins, especially in this condition.
