The city of Terina was founded by colonists of Kroton, probably in the sixth century B.C. Around 444 B.C. the city went to war with Thourioi and in 356 B.C. Terina was captured and held by the Brettians. The types of this coin refer to the primary cults of the city, which involved the worship of the nymph Terina and Nike. The two deities became assimilated as Terina-Nike over time. The obverse depicts Terina while the reverse caries a popular genre scene of Nike at rest, all executed in the highest classical style. Coins of Terina are highly prized for their beauty and this example once graced two important collections, Lockett and Pozzi, whose catalogs are essential to any complete library on Greek coinage.
