Grade:     VF, toned, a little porous
Notes:     Sale: Triton XI, Lot: 252 Extremely rare with horse forepart. While horse heads are relatively common electrum types, the forepart is traditionally found on depictions of Pegasos (cf. Weidauer 141ff). It is clear that no wing is present on the horse here, though, so it is certainly not Pegasos.
