Seller's Note/ Why no date or reference for this coin? Basically, because these issues were struck from early BC to as late as the mid-2nd Cent. AD, with pretty much the very same reverse. Such coins are always noted as anonymous city/civic issues; note the final legend at the bottom: AUTONOMOY = anonymous. Hard to see in the photo, but trust me, in hand it's quite clear.
