Greece/Seleucid; Antiochus II Theos BCE 261-246

AE 16 mm, 3.49 g, Unattributed, perhaps Cilician issue.

SC 568,  HSC 265  (R3), reference: Shown at British Museum in 1995 (this example may be the second known) Appear to be same dies as BM example as illustrated in SC 1 and HSC.  

Update 26-06-10: CNG is selling another more worn example ex: J.S. Wagner in EA236:331 (closing 7 July), so this appears to increase the census to three now known, which makes it still a very rare coin but rating an R2 using AH's rarity indicators.

O: Laureate hd of Apollo r., with curly sideburn, no border visible.

R: ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ (above) ANTIO[XOY] below, caps of the Dioscuri, no border visible.

Ex: D. Alighieri Collection

Greece/Attica; Athens c. BCE 454-404

AR Tetradrachm, 24mm, 17.08 g, 9h.

Kroll 8,  SNG Copenhagen 31.

O: helmeted hd of Athena r.

R: AΘΕ,  Owl stg r., hd facing, olive sprig and crescent behind all within incuse square.

Dealer’s notes: Near VF, numerous test cuts and a banker’s mark on obv cheek and on reverse. Earthen encrustation.

This is the kind of Athenian Tet I have always liked. One that shows its wear, and having traveled somewhat extensively. The banker’s marks on the obv and rev both appear to indicate that this coin had traveled in the east and it is likely that is where it was found.
