Attica. Eleusis. 350-330 BC. Æ 14 (2.99g, 9h). Laffaille 123 = Strauss 357 (this coin). Very rare. Charming green patina. Perfectly centered and struck. Choice extremely fine.

 Eleusis was the only Attic deme which was allowed by Athens (maybe due to its sacred character) to strike coins for the requirements of the famous Eleusinian Festivals; this privilege was apparently granted only for a limited period. Triptolemos was the great hero of the Eleusinian mysteries; he is represented here passing over the lands in his dragon-chariot making man acquainted with the blessings of agriculture
