    My wife and I have enjoyed our trip, so far. I picked up a few pieces. The first is interesting a few ways. It has a scale & a jumping sheep.

    The second is an over strike. Maybe someone here can ID the two coins.

    Our best night out was to a jazz club.

    Very cool new NY coins! The double strike looks like the left facing bust and eagle relate to a Hiketas II Litra, like:
    [​IMG]
    Syracuse, Sicily
    Hiketas II, Ruled 287-278 BC
    AE Litra, Struck circa 283-279 BC

    Obverse: ΔΙΟΣ ΕΛΛANIOY, youthful laureate head of Zeus Hellanios right.
    Reverse: ΣΥΡΑΚ-ΟΣΙΩΝ, eagle standing left on thunderbolt, with wings spread, A to left.
    References: CNS II, 168; HGC 2, 1449; SNG ANS 799


    And I see the thunderbolt which makes me think Agathokles, like this but it's bust is the wrong way (but I see an upside-down BAΣ below the thunderbolt):
    [​IMG]
    Syracuse, Sicily
    Agathokles, Ruled 317-289 BC
    AE Trias, Struck circa 304-289 BC

    Obverse: ΣΩTEIPA, draped bust of Artemis Soteira (‘Artemis the Savior’) right, quiver over shoulder..
    Reverse: AΓAΘOKΛEOΣ / BAΣILEOΣ, winged thunderbolt.
    References: CNS 138; BAR Issue 20; HGC 2, 1537
    Size: 22mm, 9.5g

    Really great overstrike. You might consider submitting to djmacdo at Forvm—he is assembling a database with some French numismatists.
