A beautiful little coin of the finest classical style, well centred with excellent details. The obverse depicts an elderly satyr, bearded and naked, with a bald head and a horse-like tail. Satyrs were the companions of Dionysus, god of wine, and spent their time drinking, dancing, and chasing nymphs. A superb example of this classic type, attractively toned.
