    From The Lexington Collection of Jonathan K. Kern.

    For collectors of the Siculo-Punic series, a key concern is the eye of the horse's head on the reverse. Quite often this is poorly struck up and/or worn, so that it shows up only as a flat spot lacking any detail. The horse's eye on this specimen is fully struck up and displays virtually no wear, making it one of the most desirable pieces of its type we have seen.
