Satyr head right.
Crescent and pellet.
0,31 g. A. Deroc, Les oboles au croissant, Cahiers Numismatiques (1981) pp. 28-30 ; L. Chabot, Le monnayage péri-massaliète et la peudo-chôra, Mélanges offerts au Docteur J.-B. Colbert de Beaulieu (1987) p. 196 where he dates the emission of 60-50 B.C. ; G. Depeyrot, Le numéraire celtique I, La Gaule du Sud-Est (2002) 31. Rare especially in this condition. Almost extremely fine

"It is certain that four obols (the only ones listed by A. Deroc) known do not incline to see there an emission of great amplitude". L. Chabot, opus citatum.
