The tree-like trophy in the center sits on top of three ringed pellets, surrounded by various motifs.

The smaller size of the quarter stater left the artist little room for design. Apparently he was unable to reduce the stater design to such small dimensions. The meaningless jumble is probably part of a larger design.
