This type was first struck by Thasos, c. 168 – 148 B.C. Roman authorities struck imitatives, c. 148 – 80 B.C., mainly in Macedonia. Tribal groups (mostly Celtic) struck imitatives from about 120 to possibly as late as 10 B.C. Coins of Class II are Thasos-type tetradrachms, but the quality of Dionysos has degraded. The legends are still recognisable, but the M-like Monogram is not always present.

DESIGN:
Obverse side
Stylized and crude head of young Dionysos right, wearing ivy wreath and taenia
Legend:
Anepigraphic

Reverse side
Nude Herakles standing, holding club and lion skin
Legend:
HPAKΛEOIΣ ΣΩTHPOΣ ΘAΣΙΩN

A perfect choice for Numismatists, Historians, Military Veterans, Collectors.

Weight 17,77 g
