Description

Small ancient silver coin with a elegant lion, turning to look back over its shoulder, following the curved line of the coin.  This coin has lovely ancient toning and the lion is beautifully centered.  The coin shows a great deal of detail of the lion's mane and face especially considering it is almost 2500 years old.  

This archaic coin has an incuse, stamped, square on the back instead of a deity, as was common in later coinage.  Inside the squares is a cicada, a rare version of the coin.
