Purchased from A.H. Baldwin, December 1974 (£4). Ex Rev. Edgar Rogers Collection, with his ticket.

To this collector the Rogers ticket was worth much more than the coin and was always fondly contemplated; an imaginary link with a very different past when there were far fewer Thessalian bronzes around while scholars and collectors studying them had much more time at their disposal.
