Triton XV, Lot: 597. Estimate $100.
Sold for $600. This amount does not include the buyer’s fee.

THESSALY, Phaloria. Early 3rd century BC. Æ Trichalkon (18.5mm, 7.99 g, 1h). Helmeted head of Artemis facing, curls of hair falling on either side, head turned slightly to the l., quiver above her l. shoulder / [ΦA]ΛΩ[P] in the exergue, IAΣΣTAN above, wolf r., at bay; below, bukranion sideways. Rogers 460 corr. [surely Artemis - because of the quiver - and not Athena]. Good Fine, green patina; struck partly flat and on a short, thick flan; a rare coin.

This bigger denomination uses the more archaic version of the ethnic and could therefore be struck a little earlier than the previous coin that uses both versions.
