Sold for $900. This amount does not include the buyer’s fee.

THESSALY, Larissa. Mid to late 4th century BC. AR Drachm (17.5mm, 6.07 g, 12h). Head of the nymph Larissa three-quarter facing l., wearing ampyx, pendant earring and plain (?) necklace; border of dots / ΛΑΡΙ below, ΣΑΙΩИ above, horse r., crouching and preparing to roll. See Münzen und Medaillen 79 (28 February 1994) 259 (same dies); see also Nomos 4, 1432.11 (same obverse die). VF, toned, a late facing head obverse die... with a difference (see ASW’s note after lot 1432 in Nomos 4).

The small die flaw on the necklace leaves some doubts as to whether it has a drop in its centre or not.
