AKARNANIA. Stratos. Circa 425-380 BC. Diobol (Silver, 11 mm, 0.99 g, 1 h), probably c. 400/390 BC. Bearded facing head of the androkephalic, horned, river-god Acheloos. Rev. Κ-Α-Λ Head of the nymph Kallirhoe to right, her hair bound up at the back; all within an incuse square. Cf. BCD Akarnania 8-9 and 355-360 for the basic type. For an example struck from the same obverse die, but from a different reverse die, and wrongly attributed to Larissa, see BCD Thessaly I, 1121. The second known example, of excellent later Classical style. Porous and with remains of corrosion, otherwise, nearly very fine.
