Note: This specimen appears to be an obverse die match to an example that appeared in the
Nomos Obolos Webauction 13 (February 2019), lot #32. The Nomos specimen is from
the Vineyard Collection. It is ex Malloy, March 1999, lot #30. The reverse dies used on
my example and the Nomos specimen are very similar, but they are not an exact match.
