Triton XV, Lot: 734. Estimate $150.
Sold for $1200. This amount does not include the buyer’s fee.

THESSALY, Skotussa. Last quarter of the 5th century BC. AR Hemiobol (7.5mm, 0.33 g, 2h). Head of Herakles facing / Σ-K-O from above r., down and l. circular, bunch of grapes hanging from a vine branch; all in circular incuse. See Nomos 4, 1335 (different dies) corr. [see note below]. Near VF, lightly toned; edges partly rough and both sides off centre; second known (?).

This particular coin reveals that Herakles is not wearing his lionskin headdress and also that the reverse type is in a circular and not in a square incuse.
