FAKE – “The Galvano Boys”. This counterfeit was made with the same reverse-die used for another piece which appeared earlier on the market, see BoC 20/2, 1995/6, p.3.
The helmet as coin-type belongs to Skione. The counterfeit, which surely is inspired by the rare Skione issue, bears a helmeted head instead of a helmet and the letter pi which should point to Potidaia rather (though the archaic coinage of Potidaia has a horseman as coin-type).
