THRACO-MACEDONIAN TRIBES, Orreskioi. Circa 500-480 BC. Obol (Silver, 9.5 mm, 0.99 g). Bearded centaur in the ‘running-kneeling’ posture to right, his head turned back to left to look at a kantharos held in his right hand. Rev. Quadripartite incuse square. AMNG III, p. 134, 6 and pl. XXVI, 3. Same reverse die as Nomos 6, 38. Extremely rare; toned. Obverse slightly off center. Good very fine.



A centaur was a favorite type of the Orreskioi, a tribe, which was spread over a considerable area within Macedonia and Thrace: thus, this piece, which is certainly from that area, has been ascribed to them.
