Obverse Siculo-Punic tet.



This coin is very interesting to me not only is this a beautiful horse's head but after being struck, one part of the flan was very sharp and pointed like it was torn.
There are hammer marks on this area forcing the metal back and making this coin safe to circulate.
If anyone would like to see these hammer marks, let me know. I will whip out my Nikon Coolpix 900 and start shooting.

I also think this side very nice in style. Interesting that the Carthagians felt it necessary to 'copy' Alexander's coinage after his invasion of the East with the resultant release of bullion as coinage.
