It appears after some time that a similar tetradrachm from the mint of Tyre has come to market. This example likely clarifies the control as being Greek not Phoenician but nevertheless previously unrecorded as is the new example which differs from the above example in the horizontal rendering of the control rather than vertical:

The difference is the rendering of the cursive Omega, on the example published above in the vertical rendering the link is missing on the right, in this horizontal example it is missing on the left. Both pieces were minted in the same year and therefore it can be concluded that the same magistrate signed both. This coin adds another control variety to the series for Antiochus VII from Tyre.
