Miracle of miracles, the order from the dealer referenced in the Basilikon thread arrived.  To be fair, all coins were very carefully packed and they were true to the pictures.

I bought it because it was neat-looking. Can anyone ID the saint and/or some of the reverse legend?

Probably the nicest coin of the lot, Antiochus IX.

Antiochos IX Philopator (Kyzikenos). 114-95 BC. 5.4 gr 18.3mm

That is, assuming it's not misattributed.  That dealer has a lot of misattributed items.

I'd have to give them a D- for shipping (took 17 days to mail out) and an A for the coins, the price I paid, and care of shipping.
