Lot 1009
Estimate: 100 CHF
THESSALY, Thessalian League. Circa 170 BC. Chalkous (Bronze, 15mm, 3.68 g), Demetrias. Round shield of Macedonian form, ornamented with a star at the center and crescents at the edge. Rev. ΘΕΣΣΑ / ΛΩΝ Dart-sling, κεστροσφενδόνη, with pointed dart within. Rogers 4 var. (legend differently placed). Warren 1961, pp. 5-8 and pl. I, 11. Rare. Well struck and with a dark green patina. About extremely fine.


This coin, as Warren points out, commemorates the alliance between Perseus of Macedon and some areas in southern Thessaly, especially Dolopia. The sling was a speciality of certain Thessalian troops who used it very successfully against the Romans during the Third Macedonian War.
