The horses on the facing head drachms of Larissa are normally shown feeding or preparing to roll over; thus, the coins in this lot are most unusual in their representations. The first harks back to earlier drachms with a running horse, the second and third show lively horses - one looking back and the other proudly prancing - and the last two show horses with human accompaniment.
