THESSALY, Larissa. Mid to late 4th century BC. Drachm (Silver, 6.10 g 6). Head of the nymph Larissa three-quarters facing, turned slightly to left, wearing ampyx, pendant earring and simple ring necklace. Rev. ΛΑΡΙΣ - ΑΙΩΝ Horse crouching right, preparing to roll over.

The late facing head silver issues of Larissa are among the most consistently attractive mass issues struck in ancient Greece. They were undoubtedly used to help finance the activities of Philip II.
