THESSALY, Larissa. Second quarter of 5th century BC. AR Hemiobol (9.5mm, 0.42 g, 3h). Head of Jason, wearing petasos, to r. / Λ-[Α]-Ρ-Ι in four corners, clockwise from top l., the Ρ reversed, head and neck of bridled horse r. in shallow incuse square. See Kagan, So-called, p. 81 and pl. 1, 6 (same dies). Near VF, lightly toned, a great rarity, unknown up to very recently and a significant coin not to be overlooked.

Probably the second known and a coin of the highest importance, being the link between the sandal and the taurokathapsia issues.
