Notes:     Sale: CNG 81, Lot: 2063 The only published example, possibly unique. Ex BCD Collection (not in LHS sale); S. Pozzi Collection, 4068 (Boutin).In Boutin’s catalog of the Pozzi collection, he lists this coin simply as “another example” of the hemiobol described in item 4065. However, not only are the types here opposite of that coin, it also is clearly a tetartemorion, not a hemiobol.
