Price 3736. Müller 730. Crisply struck on a broad flan, with a detailed satyr's head. NGC Choice AU 5/5 - 4/5, Fine Style.

    The Satyr's head seen here bears a striking resemblance to the head of Pan later adopted by the grandson of Antigonus Monopthalmus, Antigonus Gonatas, as his royal emblem during his reign as king of Macedon, 277-239 BC.
