Ancient Coins - Olbia in Thrace, bronze dolphin coin, INSCRIBED
zoom view

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

Reference : Sear Greek - 1684 but variety with inscription.

Size : 28.5 x 8.7 mm. Weight : 2.55 grams.

Grade : VF 

Obverse : The Greek inscription O V. However I believe the inscription is a retograde O L, short for OLBIO, a form of OLBIA that appears on some early coins from Olbia.

Reverse : details of the dolphins form.

Inscribed examples such as this one are scarce.
