At some point in the past 2500 years someone decided to try and make a necklace bead out of this coin by drilling from the base of Athena's neck through the coin.  The drill started protruding into the reverse field so the attempt was aborted.  The hole was then filled.   Some minor cleaning scratches are also in the reverse field.  

Obv: Bust of Athena right
