RemarksRemarks: "overstruck on a tetradrachm of Samos (cf. HGC 6, 1189). An interesting example of weight reduction, where a stater is overstruck on a tetradrachm that theoretically weighed two grams heavier. There is one spot along the edge where a small amount of metal may have been removed to lower the tetradrachm weight before restriking"
