Head of Athena to right, wearing Corinthian helmet decorated with a winged lion. Rev. AΛEΞANΔΡOΥ Nike standing front, head to left, with her wings spread, holding laurel wreath in her right hand and stylis in her left; to left, the ram of a ship. Price -. Apparently unpublished. A brilliant, wonderful piece, fully sharply struck and fully lustrous. Virtually as struck.


What makes this coin especially interesting is the animal on the bowl of the helmet: it is clearly not a sphinx or a griffin, but a winged lion.
