CORINTHIA. Corinth. Circa 400-375 BC. Diobol (Silver, 13.5 mm, 0.77 g, 9 h). Ϙ Pegasos with spread wings flying to left. Rev. A-Λ Pegasos with curved wings standing right on a stepped plinth. BCD Corinth 197 var. (magistrate's initials). Struck on a particularly broad flan. Slightly porous and off-centered obverse, otherwise, very fine.



The particularly archaic way the wings of the Pegasos are shown, and the presence of the base (not clearly visible on the BCD example or on the known examples from Leukas), probably indicates that the depiction on the reverse is that of an actual late Archaic or early Classical bronze statue in Corinth. In addition, the presence of two images of Pegasos might also be a way of indicating to the ancient user that the coin is a diobol.
