Notes:     Sale: CNG 76, Lot: 270 Very rare. From the Christopher Morcom Collection. Ex Roberto Allatini Collection (not in Ars Classica sale).At the time of Alexander’s article on the coinage of Potidaia, Gaebler, in AMNG, had discounted the earlier reading of the ethnic on one coin, remarking that it was BOTTI rather than POTEI. The ethnic on the present specimen, however, clearly shows POTEI, vindicating the reading of the earlier authors.
