Why add this Silver Drachm from the ancient Greek Thessalian League to your collection?

The Thessalian League was a confederation of city-states and tribes located in the region of Northern Greece, allied to Rome. This Silver Drachm was beautifully struck 2nd-1st Centuries BC, most likely at the Mint in Larissa, the capital city of the League. The coin is certified as part of the BCD Collection, a vast array of ancient Greek coinage accumulated by an anonymous collector, well known within the numismatic community by only the initials BCD.

Incredibly Detailed Imagery

Featured on the obverse is the laureate bust of Apollo, facing right. The reverse depicts Athena Itonia, also known as the "Thessalian Pallas." She is portrayed with a spear raised in her right arm, and a shield held in her left.
