Nike standing left on ramming prow of war galley, blowing trumpet / ΒAΣΙΛΕΩΣ ΔHMHTPIOY, Poseidon striding left, brandishing trident and chlamys wrapped around left arm. Newell --; cf. 38 for style. Good Very Fine.

    Since this coin bears no obvious mint marks or symbols, providing a mint attribution is difficult if not impossible. The poor style of the lettering and slightly light weight may suggest a contemporary imitation.
