No Teaser

The prancing horse is a typical motif on the obverse of coins from
the Thracian city Maroneia. This particular specimen also includes a
three-quarter profile of Apollo above the horse's back. The grapevine on
the reverse alludes to one of the primary products of the city—wine. Additionally on the reverse is the name of the magistrate
Metrodotos, who appears on Maroneia coins between 435/5 and 411/10 B.C.
