Grade:     Good VF, toned
Notes:     Sale: CNG 79, Lot: 137 Very rare. Ex Dr. Roland Maly Collection (LHS 100, 23 April 2007), lot 270; P.M. Proschowsky Collection (Rasmussen 245, 10 March 1970), lot 715; DurulfÉ Collection (Rollin et Feuardent, 9 May 1910), lot 479.This coin type has traditionally been attributed to the mint of Tenos in the Cyclades (see L. Artemis-Gyselen, “Les monnaies archaÏques de TÉnos” in RN 1977, class 2). However, more recent studies of the coinage of Tenos have concluded that this attribution was erroneous (see Sheedy, pp. 72-4, and R. Étienne & L. Artemis-Gyselen, "L'Atelier monÉtaire de TÉnos," in R. Étienne, Tenos II [Paris, 1990]). Sheedy’s analysis of the metrology of these archaic coins has led him to place them at an uncertain mint in the Thraco-Macedonian region.
