Obverse, Eros, Amymone, and Poseidon. Reverse, woman and two youths
Amymone was rescued from a satyr by Poseidon, god of the sea, who took her for himself. Striking the ground with his trident, he produced a spring that bore Amymone's name. The protagonists are assembled here, together with a rare representation of a feline.
