Note: There are three types of the "satyr carrying of a nymph" silver coin types which help to date them: 1. Early issues (ca 550-478 BC) show the nymph's raised hand with palm and thumb only, like a wide V. 2. Intermediate issues (ca 480­404 BC) show her raised hand with three or four fingers and a thumb. 3. Late issues (ca 411-371 BC) have the nymph's hand on the shoulder behind the satyr's head.
