I found this on a CT thread. I haven't read the whole thread about tiny Greek treasures, yet.
Was that photo part of a thread? I can't seem to find any discussion associated with it.
@gsimonel The photo was part of a CT thread. I was able to find the thread and here it is:
but...is that what is depicted on the reverse of the @fomovore coin?
There are similar examples from several cities, but a search in acsearch brought no perfect match.
Actually, I was thinking maybe a sea eagle carrying a fish in its claws. Something along these lines:
But I don't know of any examples as small as my coin. But I hadn't thought of Apollo for the obverse. I'll poke around in that direction for a bit. Thanks for the suggestion.
Rabbit's head and ears on the right side. Rabbit is right side up unlike many coins.
Like this but smaller, one eagle, rabbit right side up.
Many small coins are not in acsearch unless they are in outstanding condition because people don't auction them individually due to their low price.
Size and weight seems pretty close, too. I think you might have nailed it, shanxi. Thank you to everyone who wrote with suggestions.
