*  I am far from certain about the exact attribution and references.  For some reason Athens owl tets, old and new, just haven't captured my fancy and so I haven't read much about them.  Searching through references and catalogs to find a match for this coin was confusing at best but I did find one exact match which was deemed "Thompson 660 ff".  The seller could be wrong, of course.
