THESSALY, Larissa. Late 4th century BC. Æ Dichalkon (18mm, 3.67 g, 5h). Head of nymph Larissa r., wearing pendant earring, her hair rolled up around her head; linear border / ΛΑΡΙ above, И[ΩΙΑ] in the exergue, crouching horse r., about to roll. Rogers 293, fig. 141 var. [the exergue legend not retrograde]. VF, greenish brown patina; old scratches on the horse and die flaws below the ground line.

The general look and the engraving details and technique of this type suggest a later date than the other profile dichalka (see above lots 277 and 382.1 to 382.3).
