Roman Collector Posted June 29, 2022 · Patron Share Posted June 29, 2022 (edited) I've had this coin for a couple of years and I've always liked its design. We don't know much about it, though, and the major references disagree about such basic items as date and who it might be on the obverse. It's a pretty coin, though. I like the lyre on the reverse. Anyone else have coins from this city? Greek Æ 12.5 mm, 3.37 g, 3 h. Boeotia, Thespiae, late 3rd century BC? Obv: Female head, right, wearing kalathos/modius/polos and veil. Rev: ΘEΣΠI/EΩN either side of chelys (lyre); all within laurel wreath. Refs: BMC 8.92,14-22; Sear 2461; SNG Cop 406-7; BCD Boiotia 612; Head Boeotia p. 94, pl. VI, 13.
