Here is this estate fresh ancient Sicilian coin. This ancient silver coin is from approximately 466-405 B.C. It has Arethusa with dolphins around her on one side. On the reverse it features Nike flying right over a charioteer driving a quadriga (a chariot drawn by four horses). I acquired this from an estate. The man collected expensive ancient coins and this is in the dealer flip. The coin has wonderful detail. Excuse my poor photography. There are lots of shadows, since it has a high relief. This measures 26.5mm in max diameter, weighs 17.2 grams, and is made of silver.
