Una marmotta che consola un cinghiale che si è schiacciato la zampa sinistra mentre grufolava in cerca di tartufi. Bianchi.

DE GREGE EPICURI

Secondo me è una testa di lupo, però coniata un po' male...

Ci potrebbe anche essere un volatile (oca o anatra)... Magari quello a destra il suo piccolo...

Abbiamo capito che l'animale e' un lupo ma la moneta dove e' stata coniata?

Ottimo tentativo ma se fosse stato Argos l'enigma sarebbe stato troppo ovvio e tu sai che io sono cattivello...

Classical Numismatic Group, Triton XV, lot 595, 3/01/2012

THESSALY, Phaloria (?). 4th century BC. AR Trihemiobol (13mm, 1.14 g, 3h). Wolf’s head and neck r., with a bone(?) in its jaws and its paws outstretched to r., border of dots / Λ above horse’s head, helmeted male figure on horseback prancing r., its chiton billowing behind, spear in its raised r. Unpublished and unknown except for Nomos 4, 1437.3 (same dies). Good Fine, toned with some turquoise hues on the obverse; surfaces sound but with fine crystallization.
This writer is not at all sure that the object in the wolf’s jaws is a bone. What he actually sees is the head of a young animal in profile, its ears erect and its mouth open. Phaloria is at the westernmost end of Thessaly, just under the Pindos range of mountains that are its natural division from Epirus. As it is well known that, up to quite recently, wolves descending from the mountain were a serious threat to the area’s shepherds and their flocks of sheep, it would not be out of context to identify a bleating young lamb, shown only by its head, in the wolf’s jaws.
