Olbia was a Milesian colony located near the mouths if the rivers Hypanis and Borysthenes, the ruins of which are located near the present day village of Parutyne, Ukraine. It was founded in the 7th century BC and was visited and described by the historian Herodotus as the most important Greek center north of the Euxine. The city struck money in considerable quantities from the third to the first centuries B.C., though many are rough in style, and I don't see many "pretty" examples come up for auction often. I nabbed the coin below from a recent Numismatik Naumann auction as an upgrade to my existing example. I figured I'd show them both before I ditch the old one on eBay. As always, please excuse the poor cell phone photos. Olbia, Sarmatia Circa 320-300 BC Obverse: Horned head of River God Borysthenes (Dniepr) left.
