    Have seen anything like this one? Its size is about the same of a dime and I assume is made of copper. IMG-6464.JPG IMG-6465.JPG

    Pavlos You pick out the big men. I'll make them brave!

    From Sikyon.
    I cannot read inside the wreath or any Magistrates name, but probably this or a variety of it.

    Mine with the dove flying the other direction:

    Sikyon, the wreath probably one contained Greek letters SI. Reverse top is at 8 o'clock.

    Too late to beat Pavlos. I don't have an AE but they also come in silver.
