THESSALY, Meliboeia. Circa 352-344 BC. Æ 17mm (8.32 g, 3h). Wreathed head of nymph right / Grape bunch on vine; [MEΛI]-BOEΩN around. Helly, Quelques 15 = Rogers 391 var. (abbreviated ethnic); Warren, Two, pl. I, 8 var. (same); Moustaka -; SNG Copenhagen -. Near VF, dark green patina. Extremely rare.

Both Rogers and Warren cite the ethnic as MEΛI or MEΛIBOE, however, none of the coins listed by them are legible on the right side of the reverse, so all of these specimens (struck from different dies) may have the complete ethnic as on the present coin.
