zoom view

Denomination : Silver tetradrachm.

Date : The traditionally accepted dating of this style is 449 to 413 BC, but I believe they were probably minted down to at least 407 BC, which is the most likely date for the emergency issue plated coins of this style.

Size : 23.2 x 26.1 mm Weight : 17.12 grams.

Reference : Sear-2526.

Grade : VF but with a TEST CUT on the owl's head.  In the process of applying the test cut, Athena's nose and eye were compressed.  There is also a very tiny test cut on the rim at  3 o'clock with respect to the reverse, and there is a minor flat spot on the opposite rim where it was compressed as that test cut was applied.

Obverse : Head of Athena right. 

Reverse : Owl standing right, with an olive sprig and crescent moon over its shoulder, with a AQE to the right.
