Atl, Sicily, 357 - 336 B.C.
Calciati reports that coin finds near Caccamo confirm the location of Atl, a settelment of mercenaries. This type was found on that site in two nearly identical varieties, one with the legend AΘΛ. Our coin appears closer in style to the examples without a legend but we think we see an A or Λ off the tip of Athena's nose. All three of the types issued by Atl are very rare.
