Triton XV, Lot: 269. Estimate $300.
Sold for $1000. This amount does not include the buyer’s fee.

THESSALY, Larissa. Early to mid 4th century BC. AR Drachm (19.5mm, 6.06 g, 9h). Head of the nymph Larissa three-quarter facing l., wearing plain necklace; all within border of dots / ΛΑΡΙ above, horse with straight legs feeding r. on solid exergue line. Lorber, Early, 91.1 (these dies). Good VF, lightly toned; scattered light roughness in the reverse fields, the linear flaw under the horse just visible (at a very early state). Same reverse die (earlier state) than lot 268 above.

Ex Triton X (9 January 2007) 179, hammer $1100.

The obverse dies of this and the previous coin (lot 268) are so close that it could well be they are one and the same die. The Triton cataloguer thought this obverse to be Lorber 90 and not 91 (and he was probably right).
