ARGOLIS. Argos. Circa late 2nd Century - 80s BC. Hemidrachm (Silver, 14 mm, 2.26 g, 7 h). Forepart of wolf at bay to right. Rev. Large A; Φ-A above, club to left below; all within incuse square. BCD Peloponnesos 1142.1. Perfect centering and well struck. Slightly porous, otherwise, about extremely fine.

This coin bears the standard, famous types of the Argive triobol, the forepart of a wolf on the obverse and a large Α on the reverse. The first issues of this type go back to the early 5th century and merely have the letter in an incuse; as time went on other letters or symbols were included and, finally, in the latest issues of the 1st century, magistrates’ names were given in full.
