THESSALY, Larissa. First half of the 4th century BC. Dichalkon (Bronze, 17mm, 6.30 g 12). Head of the nymph Larissa to right, wearing a grain wreath, double-pendant earring, simple necklace and with her hair tied into a bun at the back. Rev. ΛΑΡΙ - Σ - ΑΙΩΝ (last letters retrograde) Armored horseman wearing crested Phrygian helmet riding right, holding couched lance. Rogers -. Apparently unpublished. An attractive and stylish coin with a fine brown patina. About extremely fine.

The reverse type of this coin is very reminiscent of the silver drachms struck just prior to the mass issues of the late 350s-340s (as above, lot 1152). A note from BCD: About two centuries later this coin served as the prototype for another issue of Larissa (see below, lot 1172.1).
