VEry good earlier specimen with the smaller detailed standing figure nicely centered. Also the reverse has the best possible combination of the largest part of the name and part of the fire altar beneath. Nice find !

A good find for sure,  is that part of the Lions head at the bottom I can't quite work out what it is
