Obv. bull looking back; SY.
Rev. tripod

... g Cambridge (McClean 1187), Kraay NC 1958 pl IV, 1 Seems to have survived in only a single specimen. According to Grose (NC 1915, 190) 453-... BC Sir Arthur Evans (NC 1916, Proc, 25) recognized its archaic character. The tripod need not always imply alliance with Croton. At Sybaris, Croton and Poseidonia a reverse in relief seems to have been regylarly used for fractions below the size of a drachm.
