SICILY, Syracuse. Dionysios I. 405-367 BC. Æ Hemilitron (18mm, 3.61 g). Struck circa 405 BC. Head of nymph left, wearing ampyx (decorated with two stars) and sphendone / SU-RA and two dolphins in wheel with four spokes. CNS 19; SNG ANS 411 var.; SNG Morcom 682 var. VF, dark brown patina.

From the Tony Hardy Collection.

Possibly a Kimon signed obverse die, but the signature is off the flan. It appears to be the same obverse die as the enlargement on p. 45 in CNS, which is attributed to Kimon.
