Rx: IΑ - Α Eagle standing right on palm branch, spreading wings; in right field, ΛΩ. Unpublished. Cf. R.

Cf. R. Ashton & G. Reger in Agoranomia, p. 137, pl. 6, 200. Very few of these coins have ever come to light. They are highly interesting because they show the month of issue, unfortunately not the year. EF.

    ΛΩ is the abbreviation for the month of ΛΩΙΟΣ (=July) in the Macedonian calendar.
