LUCANIA, Thourioi. Circa 350-300 BC. AR Nomos (20.5mm, 8.10 g, 11h). Head of Athena right, wearing crested Attic helmet decorated on its bowl with Skylla raising his left arm / Bull butting right on plain ground line; ΘOYPIΩN above; in exergue, fish right. HN Italy 1804 note; SNG ANS 1000–1 (same obv. die); SNG Ashmolean 939 (same dies). Attractive cabinet tone with some iridescence, a few light scratches under tone. Near EF. Very rare.

Ex Waddell 91 (16 December 2004), lot 4; Leu 91 (10 May 2004), lot 44; Hess-Leu 31 (6 December 1966), lot 63.

In HN Italy, K. Rutter notes that issues with the left-facing portrait of Athena are extremely rare, and that the (apparently sole) issue of nomoi is likely associated with the double nomoi (distaters) of Noe Group D.
