Griffin springing left / Head of Hermes left, wearing petasos; before, caduceus; all in square linear border within incuse square. May period VI, group XCIV, 276 (A207/P234); Chryssanthaki-Nagle period VI, p. 123; SNG Lockett 1136 (same dies); de Luynes 1752 (same dies); Jameson 1042 (same dies). Good VF, lightly toned.

    The chronology for May's period VI, 411/0-386/5 B.C., has just recently been shown to be too high and has been down-dated to 395-360 B.C. by Chryssanthaki-Nagle. For her arguments, see L'Histoire monetaire d'Abdere en Thrace (VIe s. av. J.-C. - IIe s. ap. J.-C.), Melethmata 51 (2007), pp. 119-26.
