Can you guess the animal - ancient coins edition!?

So, I did a 'guess the emperor from the close up' thread and some of you enjoyed that! So, I thought, why not try it with animals on ancient coins... Some are pretty tough, but have a go 🙂, it's just a bit of fun. Whoever gets them all right first will receive eternal honour and glory! (Or, maybe not... Can't guarantee anything 😂). If this is too easy or you all love it, there may be a round 2 as well later on. And you're also welcome to post your favourite (non mythical for this thread please) animals on ancient coins in this thread as well. Good luck to all. May the best win...

Nice thread, just like the other one! Again, since i recognize almost all the coins from your YT im not gonna spoil anything haha. For animals on my ancients, ill have to go with the eagle, since its my only non - mythological animal on an ancient coin:

And heres Gallienus, he sure was an animal against all these usurpers 😅 Will always stay in my top 10 of ancient chads!

You basically got it! Just one wrong, 

Boar

Lion

Wolf 

Elephant

Eagle

Is the correct order, the first one is from a Kyzikos Hemiobol. As you got the most, you are crowned the victor. Congrats 🎉👑

Really like your eagle! I have quite a lot of eagles on Greek, Roman and Ptolemaic coins but I think yours is definitely better looking than most of mine. And, yeah, I love Gallienus too - he ruled during a crazy tough time and deserves more credit. Plus, he issued that animal series of coins which I really like so thanks Gallienus 🙂

Nice idea for a thread...

Here's one....1-20190803_1-5GzYPg79b7RZWBq6s98E3mKXkNM24o.jpg.d6ea2b768654dd5328eeb2cb077a5e43.jpg

Huh, that's a tough one. I have absolutely no clue! Is that like the full animal or part of one? If that's the whole animal, my only guess would be some really weird looking horse head???🤣 Almost looks like a Ketos to me even but that seems impossible...

Dying to know what it might be!
