Thourioi in Southern Italy.

Denomination : Silver 1/12 stater.  Mint : Thourioi

Date : ca. 425 to 400 BC.

Size : 10.7 x 11.8 mm   Weight : 0.85 grams.   This is a fairly small coin.

Reference : Sear-439

Grade : F with a significant edge chip between 10 and 12 oclock on the obverse.  The original dark hoard patination (probably silver chloride) is still present, and I do not believe the coin would be improved with cleaning.

Obverse : Head of Athena right, wearing a crested helmet.

Reverse : Bull butting right, with it's head turned slightly back.  There are some letters above the bull's back, but they are obscured by the patination.
