Macedon, Olynthos (?), Silver Hemiobol

Macedon, Olynthos, Chalkidian League (?) (c. 425-390 B.C.), Silver Hemiobol. Laureate head of Apollo facing left, rev. quadripartite incuse square, each quadrant diagonally divided into four triangular sections, each of these containing a pellet, 0.35g. (SNG ANS 1007 var. (uncertain Thraco-Macedonian); Robinson & Clement, p. 318, c = pl. XXX, 41, pl. XXXIV, a, and pl. XXXV, 28 (uncertain Macedon)). Toned, good very fine, a pretty little coin.

The attribution of this coin has been a matter of conjecture for a number of years. It has traditionally been given to an uncertain Thraco-Macedonian origin. However, several finds in excavations at Olynthos have pointed towards the Chalkidian League, an attribution that is somewhat supported by its style.
