The medallion was struck from a die of which a considerable portion had broken away, so that the beautiful head looks as if it were rising out of an unworked block of metal.
One of a series in commemoration of the victory over the Athenians in 413 BC. Transferred from the British Museum in 1950, no longer in the collection.
