Campania, Neapolis 340-241 BC AR Didrachm. Originally a Rhodian colony (Parthenope) of very early foundation. The city was re-colonized by Kymaians c. 600 B.C. and had it's name changed to Neapolis (New City) around 450 B.C. Allied with Rome from 326 B.C. Today the area is known as Naples Italy.
Didrachm, OB: head of nymph , left, wearing earring & diadem; Rx: Man-headed Bull walking left, crowned by Nike flying above; full Greek word for Neapolis in exergue. Word under the Bull is unknown to me. Nice style but very porous, but retains some eye appeal. This exact type does not appear to be in Sear, Greek Coins - Europe.
