The earliest coins published coins of Gergis are a series dated to after 350 BC, retaining the general types used on the present coin, but without the reverse type set within an incuse (cf. TraitÉ II 2392-2394). This and the previous lot now expand our knowledge of Gergis’ minting into the 5th century BC.
