SIKYONIA, Sikyon. Circa 360s-340s/330s. Obol (Silver, 11mm, 0.69 g 12). Dove alighting right, holding fillet in its beak; on wing, Ι. Rev. ΣΙ Dove flying to right. BCD 245. A lovely piece struck in high relief. Struck on a tight flan, otherwise, good extremely fine.

From a European collection, acquired prior to 2009.

The obols of Sikyon were struck in very large numbers, understandably so because they were very popular and circulated throughout the Peloponnesos, as well as in many places in Central Greece where the Aeginetic standard was also used. Thus, the vast majority of known Sikyonian obols are in worn condition; pieces of the superb quality of this one are very difficult to find.
