THESSALY, Kierion. 3rd quarter of 4th century BC. AR Trihemiobol (14mm, 1.34 g, 6h). Laureate and bearded head of Zeus r., border of dots / ΚΙΕΡΙ l. up, ΕΙΩИ r. down circular, Arne, half-kneeling to her l., playing with knucklebones to her r., in field r., Φ. Traité IV, 509, pl. CCLXXXIX, 22 (same dies); SNG Cop. 32. Good VF, lightly toned and in good metal.

The dies for the Zeus head trihemiobols are less detailed in their execution and these coins appear to be a little later in date than the nymph obverse coins of the same denomination.
