Greek Bronze Siculo-Punic Horse 4th c. BC (050b)
Beautiful ancient bronze coin with an image of a high headed horse with the right foreleg lifted. The obverse side of the coin is an image of Persephone-Tanit. The coin is a dark bronze. This is a charming small coin and as is common with dark bronze ancient coins, the detail is much more apparent in person.
Greek bronze coin from Siculo-Punic region, modern day Sicily. It's a bit confusing because Carthage, which controlled Sicily, was not considered Greek. In ancient coins, coins dated from ca. 625 B.C. to 30 B.C. are categorized as Greek.
Dated: 4th Century BC
Size approx 14mm in a hand fabricated sterling silver mount. 2mm silver bead chain.
