Drachme (Trite), zweite Hälfte 6. Jhdt.v.Chr.
Ex G. Hirsch 148 (27 November 1985), 35. See Gulbenkian II, 505 for the tridrachm which would make this trite a drachm. Jenkins (above) rejects Seltman's "Thrace" theory and agrees with Kraay (ACGC, p. 89 and footnote 2) and Price who had already transferred the British Museum specimens to the Chalkis trays. He dates these coins to the sixth century and says this particular denomination was the prototype for the early coins of the Chalkidian colonies in the West (Naxos, Zankle, Himera). An important early archaic coin with ambitious engraving, very advanced for its sixth century date.
