Comments

Note from CNG: Attribution to Thera is only conjectural, based on the dolphin motif on the obverse. Stylistically the coin is not at all similar to the other issues attributed to Thera. Other possiblities, at least in this catalouers opinion, could be Caria (the punch is similar to those found on coins of Kaunos) or perhaps Lycia. Nothing is know about the find spot of this coin.
