Hybride associant un droit d’un type (V. 1384) et un revers de l’autre (. 1368). Sur cet exemplaire, au revers,la musculature d’Héraklès est bien détaillée. Cette émission est bien ciblée avec la lettre (C) entre les jambes d’Héraklès qui semble regravée sur un phi.

(302-281 BC)

Between leaving Kléonymos Sparta in 302 BC and the arrival of Pyrrhus, king of Epirus twenty years later, the history of Taranto and its territory remains unclear with many areas shadow on the historical and monetary plans. The intervention of the king of Epirus was the beginning of the decline of the city Tarentine.
