Notes:     This coin is from what is known as the Campano-Tarentin type, because the obverse is based on the coins of Neapolis in Campania, while the reverse is a Taras type, with an ethnic that states the coin was issued from Taras. This suggests that it was struck during a period of alliance between the two cities.
