Phokis, Greece, Phokian League Federal Coinage, Late 4th or Early 3rd Century B.C.
BCD writes of this and similar types with Athena on the obverse and the abbreviated ethnic in a wreath on the reverse, "It is hoped that the multitude of styles and the differences in the fabric and flan evident amongst these coins will help vindicate the writer's believe that we are dealing with an assortment of types that were struck on odd occasions and within a time span of more than a century." Kroll dates this type (based on the Agora deposit A18: 8 [IGCH 157]) to "early third century BC, in any case well after the Third Sacred War."
