Eryx, Sicily, 400 - 340 B.C.
Eryx stood on the summit of an isolated mountain at the north-west extremity of Sicily. Calciati notes, "There are considerable variations in the minting technique of these small bronzes. Besides coins [such as our coin] which have been struck in pairs with pronounced tangs cut by shears (N. 19/1) there are blanks with rounded edges and truncated-conic ones. A common feature is an imperfect technique, which is otherwise justified by the fact that these small coins were produced for local needs."
