I have been in love with this Celtic"ish" design on a later Macedonian shield coin for some time. So, I bought the first one that I didn't get blown out of the water on...

Sorry folks, not much to see here. But I'd landed one.

More recently a cherry, provenanced one came along for a song... and I snatched it up!

Ptolemy VI intervened in a Seleucid dynastic dispute but this turned into a war of conquest which resulted in the taking of the Seleucid capital Antioch. As a result, the Seleucid king Diodotus Tryphon and his commanders crowned Ptolemy as “King of Egypt and Asia”, but Ptolemy got cold feet and rejected the title in fear of a Roman intervention against him.
