Very interesting fluid representation of the satyr and nymph. Do you have a die reference for this piece? This is one of the nicer obverse dies I've seen of this type.

I don't have a die reference to this piece. I would imagine that there would be some information in Le Rider's "Thasiennes," but I dont have the book.
