BRUTTIUM, Rhegion. c. 415/0-387 BC. Tetradrachm (Silver, 22mm, 16.82 g 6). Lion’s mask facing. Rev. ΡΗΓΙΝΟΝ Laureate head of Apollo to right, with olive sprig behind. Herzfelder 86. HN III 2496. A splendid piece, struck in high relief and lightly toned. Good extremely fine.

From a Swiss private collection.

The heads of Apollo at Rhegium, with their hair carefully bound up and wreathed, are rather reminiscent of those from Olynthos. This is a very pleasing example with a head of severe yet attractive style.
