    THRACE. Olbia.

    Cast bronze “Fish” money in the shape of a dolphin.
    84,91 g. c.94×34 mm.

    Ref.: B.A. Anokhin, Black Sea coinage (Kiew 1989, in Russian), p. 104 and pl. 3,17 (92,54 g).

    BoC: 20/1, 1995, p.11.

    FAKE – This counterfeit was offered to an US collegue as the specimen illustrated in Anokhin after it had been cleaned – this would explain the different weight.
