SICILY. Messana. 465-462 BC. Tetradrachm (Silver, 26 mm, 17.20 g, 6 h). Charioteer driving biga of mules walking to right; in exergue, olive leaf. Rev. ΜΕSSE-Ν-ΙΟΝ Hare springing to right. Caltabiano 217 (D121?/R115). HGC 2, 779. SNG ANS -. Toned and well centered with a nice, clear reverse. Die-breaks on obverse, otherwise, very fine.

From an American collection.

The fact that this coin was in a very old (pre 1970s) collection can be attested by the lovely and deep tone it has. Nevertheless, it is not recorded in the Caltabiano corpus.
