    Stunning Siculo-Punic Issue

    SICULO-PUNIC. Entella. Ca. 300-289 BC. AR tetradrachm (26mm, 17.02 gm, 3h).  Head of Heracles right, wearing lion skin headdress, paws knotted at neck / Horse's head left; club before, angled back, palm tree behind, Punic MHMHNT' ('People of the Camp') below. HGC 2, 284. Cf. Jenkins, Punic 319b (O103/R262). SNG Lloyd 1650. A simply gorgeous example of this handsome type, deeply struck on a broad flan from fresh dies of the finest style. NGC Choice MS? 5/5 - 5/5.

    This wonderful tetradrachm is the finest we have ever seen of this type, a sentiment confirmed by NGC, which has conferred one of the highest conceivable grades for a Greek tetradrachm.
