Carthage, Siculo-Punic, silver tetradrachm, 'QRTHDST'
Tetradrachm.
Obv:- Forepart of horse r., Nike above flying r. holding wreath and caduceus over horse's head, ear of grain before, Punic legend 'QRTHDST' below.
Rev:- Palm tree with two date clusters.
Jenkins, Part II. SNR 53. 17.
Ca.410-395 B.C. Carthage mint.

Jenkins believes that this issue was struck at Carthage and used to pay troops fighting in Sicily. In that connection, this issue probably coincides with the Carthaginian decision to send a military force in 410 B.C. to intervene in Sicily on behalf of Segesta. This resulted in a very long Carthaginian involvement in Sicilian affairs that finally culminated in the confrontation with Rome in the First Punic War (264-241 B.C.).
