Example from BMC Seleucid (1878)

My example as well as one other are featured at Wildwinds: http://www.wildwinds.com/coins/greece/seleucia/antiochos_XI/t.html

The example shown in SMA appears to be different from the BMC example though the photo is poor. According to SC there are other examples SNG Fitzwilliam 5820 and in the T. Miller Collection as well. Unfortunately, the SNG on line identifies 5820 as a tet of Demetrius III, and identifies 5819 as Antiochus XI though it is in fact a bronze of Antiochus X [SC 2432 v](note link): http://www.s110120695.websitehome.co.uk/SNG/sng_reply2a.php?verb=SNGuk_0408_5819

The ANS lists a bronze as Antiochus XI, though from the description it appears to be an Antiochus VIII from the inscription. The coin reference is ANS 1992.54.2151

There are three examples listed in the Catalogue of Greek Coins in the Hunterian Collection; University of Glasgow, III weighing in at 7.419 g, 7.9 g and 8.42 g respectively. They do not appear to be plated in the catalogue, though are described as "slightly bearded".

In Anatolian Studies, Vol. 23, Aşvan 1968-1972: An Interim Report (1973), pp. 187-190, Anthony McNicoll writes of a find that was identified as "?Antiochus XI", but is clearly an Antiochus VIII likely SC 2318 example.

This raises the census to 9 (?) of the SC 2442 variety. Likely more out there?
Update 9 April 2015- An online auction Solidus Numismatik On-line Auktion 5 (26 April 2015) has an example  LOT 111 identified as SC 2442 but may be the beardless variety.  It is 21mm and 9.44g. This appears to be heavier than the previously recorded examples by about a gram.
