THESSALY, Larissa. Circa 365-356 BC. AR Obol (10mm, 0.72 g, 1h). Head of the nymph Larissa right / Bull charging right; ΠΛE[I] in exergue. Lorber, Beginning, p. 120; BCD Thessaly II 275; HGC 4, 508. Toned, porous and some roughness. Fine. Extremely rare, one of four known.

From the Asher D. Atchick Collection. Ex BCD Collection (Classical Numismatic Group Electronic Auction 435, 2 January 2019), lot 27.

A note from BCD from the Triton sale: “Mr. ΠΛΕΙ (if we can call him that) made sure that the whole range of the most popular silver denominations was struck in his name; it would be nice if a ΠΛΕΙ stater turned up (although the assumed chronology for this fascinating series is a little too early for staters). This writer does not expect a hemiobol either as there would be no room for both the ethnic and ΠΛΕΙ on the reverse.”

Closing Date and Time: 15 July 2020 at 10:21:00 ET.
