One of the most sought after and famous of ancient Greek coins, this coin is known only from one obverse die and five reverse dies. A short-lived issue, it was likely produced for a specific purpose. During this time Naxos, the oldest of the Greek colonies in Sicily, actively supported Athens, notably with the Sicilian expedition of 427 BC. This coin thus may have been struck in connection with these events.

Showing a final transition from the earlier Aitna Master Tetradrachms which still exhibited the rigidity of design typical of the archaic, this coin shows true classical style. Dionysos' features are very natural: his hair tousled, his eye correct, the conventional archaic smile gone - replaced by relaxed lips; and his diadem less formalized. The reverse, which alludes to the source of Naxos' prosperity and power: wine production, depicts a very lifelike Silenos. Heeding far more closely the traditional description of the wisest, oldest and most drunken of Dionysos' Silenoi, half-man, half-goat followers, the engraver presents a somewhat disheveled Silenos with a round and balding head, curving, flowing beard, and some paunch. Estimated Value $25,000 - 30,000
