Corinth, Corinthia, Greece, c. 375 - 368 B.C.
Ex William Turner Collection. William Turner (1792 - 1867), British diplomat of the early 19th century, authored his interesting and opinionated Journal of a Tour in Levante (1820) describing his adventures in the area. This specimen was obtained by Turner in the course of his travels (1812 - 1817).

I:292 "..[At] the site of the ancient town of Hexamillia built across the Isthmus [from Corinth]..We found the cottagers all dancing to wretched music..I asked them if they had any medals and immediately they all flocked around me, each with a few, which I purchased from five, ten and twenty paras a piece. These were mostly of Corinth and Phokis."
