Tetradrachmon, ca. 525-500 v.Chr.
From the collections of A. Rhousopoulos, J. Hirsch XIII (15 May 1905), 1896, C.S. Bement, Naville & Cie. VI (28 January 1924), 1069, and J.W. Garrett, Numismatic Fine Arts - Bank Leu AG 16-18 October 1984 (Garrett, Part II), 213. Illustrated in many scholarly publications and with an impressive pedigree going back nearly a century, this important coin is probably the third and best specimen in existence and the only one in private hands. For the reverse orientation of this coin and the archaic Eretrian silver that follows, see Denyse Bérend's "Histoire de Poulpes" in Kraay-Mørkholm essays, pp. 23-24.
