THESSALY, Atrax. Circa 360s-340s BC (or later?). Dichalkon (Bronze, 15mm, 2.73 g 11). Bearded head of Atrax to right. Rev. ΑΤΡΑ / ΓΙΩΝ Bull, with head lowered, butting to right. Cf. Rogers 160. Rare. Minor die break on the obverse, otherwise, an exceptional coin with a superb green patina and lovely style. Good extremely fine.


Precisely when this coin should be dated is not really clear. The wonderful style points towards the 4th century, but it could well be later. Perhaps it should be placed at the end of the 4th century?
