ΘΕΣΣΑ / ΛΩΝ Athena Itonia striding right, hurling spear with her right hand and extending shield in her left; at right, on top of Athena’s spear, owl standing right. BMC 44 var.

A note from BCD: BCD would like to add here that the obverse is in high relief but weakly struck and that the monogram behind the head looks more like ΑΥ.
