Over $1000.00 The most artistic ancient Greek coins were issued by the wealthy cities of Magna Graecia, in lower Italy and Sicily. This beautiful and rare distater (tetradrachm) of Thourion is offered for $1400.00. The strike is somewhat flat on the reverse, yet its style is outstanding. Athena's helmet depicts the monster Scylla hurling a boulder at a ship - perhaps the pentekonter of Odysseus.
