(710.1) THESSALY, Pherai. Teisiphon. Tyrant, 358-353 BC. Æ Chalkous (14mm, 2.38 g, 10h). Bull forepart r., r. foreleg bent / ΤEIΣIΦONOY from below, l. up and circular, retrograde, forepart of horse r. This legend variant not found in literature consulted.

Bull forepart r., beaded truncation, r. foreleg bent / ΤEΣI-[Φ]-ONOY from below, l. and up circular; the missing first I of the legend added under the space between the E and the Σ, forepart of horse r.

A charming correction by the die cutter of the reverse die who forgot to engrave the third letter of the legend and added it below as an afterthought.
