Can you help to identify this coin, please?


Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a bag lot (60) of (mixed) Greek coins. I have managed to attribute all bar a half a dozen of them, and I am in need of help with those.

Most have come from Macedonia and date in the first century B.C.

Here is one of the coins that I am having some difficulty with.

Measurements 5.52 gm., AE 17.7 mm.

I believe that we may have on the obverse a male head (Bearded) facing right, and,

on the reverse we may have a female figure standing facing, head to left with right arm outstretched and left arm resting on a shield, spear behind.

Can anyone help me get further with an attribution, please? Thank you.

Looks to be this from Amphipolis:

Thank you Ancientone. That indeed does look like my coin.

Your input is greatly appreciated. Thank you, again.
