Syracuse, Sicily Dionysios I 405 - 367 B.C. Bronze Litra Very Tough to Find
I have to admit, this is one of my favorite bronze of Athena obverse facing left and an amazing display of artistry on the reverse of a unusual design (super cool) mythical Hippocamp, which is not often seen. Struck during the reign of Dionysios/sius the I. This coin has a fantastic dark patina, darker than how the pictures came out. On the obverse, we see a helmeted head of Athena. Both sides are very well struck with little wear and very good surfaces. It's also an excellent candidate to bezel set it for an awesome piece of jewelry. It certainly is a conversation piece. The weight is 6.9 g, 20 mm diameter.
