Comment

Extremely rare type, perhaps to be compared with Delestrée 2109 and 2110. The horizontal design under the head is not very elaborate in comparison, the small globule under the design is more similar to Délestrée 2108. Very sought after by collectors for these atypical decorations characteristic of Venetes staters.
