Rx: EY[B] to right, outwards, head of nymph right, hair waved and rolled; round earring; incuse square. McClean 5703, pl. 205.5 (same dies). Babelon, Traité, pl. CXCVII, 18. W.P. Wallace, NNM 134, 1956, p. 137, pl. IV, 4 (same reverse die). The image of the cow cleaning itself captures the essential wonder of Greek coins at their finest in that it shows nature as accurately as a camera. The top of the nymph's head a little off flan, but the obverse almost perfectly centered. Some minor isolated porosity, otherwise EF.
