Obv/ Head of Demeter r. 

Rev/ OΛBIO, eagle on dolphin left.

Con/ VF+; glossy green patina; the head of Demeter is off center. The image of the eagle on dolphin is superb, unlike most examples of this issue.

Ref: Nieczitajlo 533 var.

Kevin's Note: This is an fine example of how the flans of the coins were cast in molds then broken apart for striking. Excellent addition to your book!
