Charioteer, of strangely simian form, holding a spear in his right hand and the reins in his left, seemingly sitting on the dumb of a horse galloping to right; in field to right, spear upwards; below horse, spear to left and, in exergue, bead and reel design. Delestrée & Tache 106 (same dies). Delestrée, Revue Numismatique 2001, pl. X, 23. Very rare, possibly the third known example. Light scratches, otherwise, very fine.
