Seller's Note: Nearly all of these coins have been 'over-struck' in one way or another; IE, on Apollo/Bow in case with ΠAN; Bearless satyr r./Bow and Arrow ΦA; etc., etc. The list goes on and on. Many have been re-struck at other nearby colonies, such as Theodosia, which is very cool for serious collectors.

Remember, half the fun of collecting these coins is just figuering out exactly what they are!
