GREEK, Pantipakaion, Young Pan and Bull, 4th Cent. B.C.
Obv/ Head of Young Pan l., wreathed with ivy.
Rev/ PAN; Head and neck of bull l.
Ae 28mm, BMC 3.16

This coin, without any doubt, is the most beautiful issue that I have ever owned. It looked to have been cut from a pidgeon's-blood ruby, rather than struck from metal. I sold it to a very descerning Canadian collector a few years ago for an ungodly price. The money seemed good at the time...but in retrospect, I wish that I had kept it for my own.... Sad but true.

Yet another great Pan/bull. Love those coins, and this patina is incredible (not meaning I suspect you've done it, of course )
