Nola is one of the oldest cities in Campania, but it was always overshadowed by Neapolis. This coin is certainly based on Neapolitan issues, but it is particularly fine in style, far more attractive than many of its prototypes. The city is also well known because it gave its name to an Attic Red Figure amphora shape, the “Nolan Amphora” because a particularly fine example was found there.
