Larissa was was represented on the obverse of common drachms produced by the city of Larissa (map) between 400 BC and at least 340 BC, as a three-quarters face with outward flowing hair. This style was copied from the head of Arethusa by Kimon (Cimon), depicted on Syracusan tetradrachms (example). According to hoard evidence from Thessaly, this coinage was produced down to c. 320 BC. Other coins depict Larissa seated, holding a hydria and with a spring nearby, confirming her status as a nymph.
