Notes:     Sale: CNG 76, Lot: 137 Very rare, unrecorded by Cahn. From Collection C.G. Ex Classical Numismatic Group 47 (16 September 1998), lot 106.The style of the reverse type clearly places this coin within the cited small series, but all previously known obverses in this series are with head left. Perhaps this coin is a transitional issue with the obverse type of the previous series.
