Bisaltian District, Derrones. Dodecadrachm
Bisaltian District, Derrones. c. 475-450 BC. Dodecadrachm, 34.70gg. (7h). Obv: Ox cart with basket-weave sides driven right by bearded man with whip, Corinthian helmet above, between ox's legs, I to right, ? above. Rx: Triskeles of human legs. Unpublished, but several from the same dies have appeared in trade in recent years. This is only the second time we have had a mint state Derrones. Fully lustrous and struck on a broad flan. Mint State.

Purchased from Apollo Numismatics in 2006.

Svoronos knew the inscriptions Euergetes , Xe, and Ekco on dodecadrachms of the Derrones (pl. ii, 5-7), and surmised that they might be the names of tribal chieftains. Our unpublished coin adds the new name Ʌ to this short list.
