Denomination : AE 36.

Date : 3rd to 1st century BC.

Reference : SNG BM Black Sea - 396.

Size : 36.3 x 37.2 mm. Weight : 18.76 grams.

Grade : XF with a glossy brown patination.  The image looks like there are some bright red-brown spots, but one does not see that with the coin in hand. The coin is much more attractive in hand, than the image would suggest.

Obverse : Gorgon head facing.

Reverse : Sea eagle flying left, carrying a dolphin, with O to the left.

The glossy brown patination is a natural cuprite patination, that suggests these are struck from a leaded bronze. These are cast coins, so have typical small casting flaws around the edges. This is one of the nicest specimens of this type I have ever seen.
