Most of these coins were withdrawn from circulation and melted down at the end of the Third Sacred War. Surviving examples are very rare, less than a couple of dozen known.The coin bears the name of Onymarchos, the second Phokian strategos (general) in the third to fifth years of the Third Sacred War. It is amongst the first mainland Greek coins of its time to bear the full name of a living Greek.
