EF (Extremely Fine) - NGC
|Condition:||EF (Extremely Fine)|
|Year/Period and Variation:||ca. 465/2-460 BC. Transitional issue.|
Attica, Athens. AR Silver Tetradrachm ( 17.02 g), ca. 465/2-460 BC. Transitional issue. Obverse: Head of Athena right, wearing crested Attic helmet decorated with three olive leaves over visor and a spiral palmette on the bowl
Reverse: owl standing right, head facing; above to left, olive-spray with berry and crescent; all within incuse square.
Wonderful transitional style. Extremely Fine. There is considerable variety in the designs of Athenian coins classified by Starr in his Group V, the largest of all his groupings. This tetradrachm falls in his last subdivision, subgroup B, series 5, and thus places it right before the massive Classical frontal eye type of the latter half of the 5th century BC.
