Aes Grave teruncia.  ca. 220 BC.

Denomination : Bronze teruncia. 

Mint : Luceria in Apulia (which was a Roman city after 314 BC, so we have listed this coin under the Republic rather than as a Greek coin).

Reference : Thurlow-Vecchi #283.  Haeberlin plate 71, 21-23. 

Size : 27.2 x 29.5 mm. Weight : 31.55 grams.

Grade
: VF with a slightly heavy patination

Obverse : Eight pointed star with a dot in the middle (on this specimen the dot in the middle is weak). 

Reverse : A dolphin with three dots above (denomination mark for 1/4 Aes), and an "L" below.

These are crudely cast coins, and this specimen is a reasonably nice example of the issue.
