An outstanding example with a fine green patina. Slightly softly struck, otherwise , ex­tremely fine. From an old European collection. Triantes (i.e. pieces of 4 unciae) from Himera are surprisingly uncommon, especially when compared to the abundant tetrantes. This is a particularly fine example, beautifully centered and with a wonderful gorgon head.
