Date :  4th to 5th century BC (the dating of these is not 100% certain).

Denomination : Bronze Dolphin (the exact denomination is not known).

Reference : Sear Greek - 1684

Size : 37.3 mm long.  Weight : 3.23 grams.

Grade : gVF with good dolphin formThis is by far the nicest dolphin form I have owned on one of these, with all major features other than the tail (that is seldom if ever formed on these) clearly formed.  The patination is a mottled green-brown, with some crusty areas, and minor areas of brassy metal visible on high points..

Shaped like Dolphins, there is no real doubt these cast bronzes were used as an early form of money.  This type has no inscriptions (there are some scarce types with moneyer's names on them) but there is no doubt the were issued from Olbia in Thrace.
