Hello,

I bought a greek silver coin.
Dealer told it's an hemidrachm from Byzantion, 340-326 BC but I can't find any similar coin on the net. It shows on the obverse a wild goat turned left, below there is a "fish" which looks more as a shark than a dolphin. Interesting fact is that the "fish" is turned upside down.
Obverse shows an incuse punch in form of a windmill sail.
Weight is 1,78 gr.

Do you know something about it Thanks.
