Greece/Seleucid; Antiochos I BCE 281-261

AE 12 mm, 2.42 g, 3h,  Uncertain Mint 23, in Eastern Syria or Mesopotamia (c. BCE 280 per Newell)

SC 373

WSM 1133 (this example is better than those depicted by Newell)

O: tripod altar on a shield dotted border around

R: bow case with BAΣI on the right going down and ANTI on the left going down as well.  No control marks. 


Hoover rates this item as R3 (#201) but one can locate several examples on acsearch.info or on CNG’s site, which lowers the rarity to perhaps R2 if not R1 for this piece. In WSM alone, Newell lists five examples.
