GREEK, Thasos, Tetradrachm
Thasos: After 148BC
A: Dionysos. R: Herakles standing.

A pleasant example of a finer style. Multiple scratches and clear signs of circulation keeps it from the top dollar prize tag. Slight wave in the flan - a result of a broken reverse die. Die crack visible from A in the inscription to your right and to Herakles' upper arm to your left.

D=34 x 35.5 mm. W=16.75 grams. Dies at 12 o'clock.
