Map of Thessaly, cropped from old public domain map of Greece, from the Perry-Castañeda Library Map Collection, Historical Atlas by William R. Shepherd. The city was allied with Philip II of Macedon and unlike some other cities in Thessaly, it did not revolt from the Macedonians after the death of Alexander the Great. This coin, for example, is dated to the 3rd century BC because of its similarity in its iconography to contemporaneous issues of Philip V and Perseus of Macedon. The city was notable in antiquity for its temple of Zeus Pelinnaeus. The location of Pelinna is at modern Palaiogardíki, where there are considerable remains of the ancient town. I have had this coin for about a quarter century, but never got around to photographing or researching it until today! Post your coins of Thessaly, horsemen, or anything you feel is relevant!
