Great coin. I like the way the lion is looking sideways.

Thanks. This type has always been one of my favorites, but the tetradrachms cost a small fortune. I didn't realize they also existed in drachms until seeing the NAC catalog.

You're right, bad choice of words. The tets cost a fortune, and this drachm was a small fortune! I will be out of action for a while now...

A stunning coin! I love these coins and wish someday to get one. But more likely a wish then reality.
