Description:

Lucania, Sybaris AR Stater. Circa 530-510 BC. Bull standing left, head right; VM in exergue / Incuse bull standing right, head left. HN Italy 1729; cf. SNG ANS 828-44. 8.13g, 33mm, 12h.

Very Fine. Very interesting style.

From a private North American Collection.

One of two staters of Sybaris in this sale engraved in unusual style, this coin depicts an animal that looks far more like a horse than it does a bull. The groundline and border are simplistic, perhaps suggesting a die that was produced in some haste.
