Denomination : Silver drachm.

Date : The traditionally accepted dates for this style is 449 to 413 BC, but I believe thei were probably minted down to at least 407 BC (the probably date the plated coins of this style were first issued).

Size : 13.7 x 15.9 mm.  Weight : 3.97 grams.

Reference : Sear-2527 variety.

Grade : VF but slightly rough.  It is very difficult (and expensive) to find an example of this issue that is not either rough or highly worn.

Obverse : Head of Athena right. 

Reverse : Owl standing right, with an olive sprig over it's shoulder, with a AQE to the right.
