zoom view

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

Reference : similar to  Sear Greek - 1684 but with inscription.

Size : 26.2 x 8.7 mm. Weight : 1.86 grams.

Grade : F with a slightly rough patination.

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 : dolphin form.

Inscribed examples such as this one are scarce.
