Commentary


C’est le second exemplaire d’hémi-drachme que nous proposons, après le n° 319 de MONNAIES 61. Avec ce style et ce type de flan léger, nous sommes bien en présence d’hémi-drachme, telle que le DT. 3415 !
Les fractions de cette série ne sont connues qu’à très peu d’exemplaires, et ce depuis très récemment....
