Description

Ancient Greece, Attica, Athens, c. 454–404 BC, Tetradrachm, Kroll 8, HGC 4, 1597, 17.12 g - lightly toned and of fine style

An iconic piece of Greek miniature art which although struck in the classical period still preserves a mysterious Archaic smile on the lips of Athena. Lately, a number of cleaned examples from recent hoards have surfaced onto the market, rendering pieces of provenance still more desirable - Ex. CNG Auction 100 (October 2015), lot. 1373 - hammer price, 2,250 $
