Description

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.

With Certificate of Authenticity.
