THESSALY, Skotussa. Circa 394-367 BC. Dichalkon (Bronze, 17mm, 5.32 g 5). Kantharos with high handles. Rev. Σ-Κ / Ο-Τ Club in saltire with an uncertain object. SNG Morcom 951 (misread and described as being from an uncertain western mint, otherwise unpublished. Extremely rare, a lovely, solid coin with a dark, glossy patina. Good very fine.

This coin must be related to the smaller coin which follows: the way their legends are arranged is quite singular and is not found on any other Skotussan bronze type. Exactly what crosses the club on the reverse is uncertain: perhaps it is a lagobolon or a shorter club.
