Description

Sikyonia, Sikyon. Circa 360s-340s/330s BC. Obol (Silver, 11mm, 0.63 g 3). Dove alighting right; above tail, Σ. Rev. Dove flying right. BCD 255.3. A rare variant with no letter on the reverse. Good extremely fine.

The obols of Sikyon were struck in very large numbers, understandably so because they were very popular and circulated throughout the Peloponnesos and in many places in Central Greece where the Aeginetic standard was also used. Thus, the vast majority of known Sikyonian obols are in worn condition. Pieces like this one are exceptional.
