SIKYONIA, Sikyon. Circa 431-400 BC. AR Stater (24mm, 11.95 g, 3h). Chimaira standing left; ΣE below / Dove flying left within wreath. BCD Peloponnesos 186; HGC 5, 181. Good Fine, toned, slightly granular surfaces, light graffito on reverse.

From the BCD Collection. Ex Joseph J. Copeland Colection (Coin Galleries, 10 February 1993), lot 80.

There is a small horizontal mark above the tail feathers of the dove, where a control letter is often placed, but this mark cannot be a letter and is thus likely a small die break or flaw.
