Lot of 2 coins.

(103.1) THESSALY, Kierion. Mid 4th century BC. AR Trihemiobol (14mm, 1.24 g, 3h). Head of the nymph Arne r. wearing triple pendant earring and necklace, border of dots / ΚΙΕΡΙ l. up, ΕΙΩΝ r. down, Arne, her hair done up and tied in a small bun at the top of her head, half-kneeling to her l., playing with knucklebones to her r. See CNG 57 (4 April 2001) 284 for the same dies. Good VF, lightly toned and with slightly rough surfaces.

The dies of this coin are very delicately engraved with an amazing amount of detail and must have been the work of a talented and meticulous die-cutter.

Head of the nymph Arne left, wearing pendant earring and necklace / ΚΙΕΡΙ l. up, ΕΙΩΝ r. down, Arne, half-kneeling to her l., playing with knucklebones to her r. Unpublished (?) with obv. to left. VF, lightly toned with rough surfaces and on a triangular flan.

The reverse die of this coin of fine style is very close (same hand) to the reverse die of lot 99 above.
