What a nice "little" coin. Always a fan of Dionysos..........I pay tribute often.


The buying binge starting again?


Curious, how does this look in hand? At half the size of a dime, I think I would need a loop to see the details. Are my eyes getting that old or do these things really look so tiny. When I look at catalog pictures I find myself squinting alot.


Don't drop it in the carpet.

I have two other "tiny wonders" to post, but I'm waiting on research feedback before adding them to my gallery. Both are either hemiobol or tetartemorion, in either case they are about half the size and weight of the coin above.


If you stick with the smaller issues, which are infinitely more rare than the big guys, you too can go on relatively guilt-free binge spending. :)
