Ptolemy IX, or X, or even I ??


Recommended Posts

The seller described this coin as :-

Ptolemaic Egypt, Kyrene Mint, Time of Ptolemy IX-X. c.116-88 BC.

Obv: Diademed head of Ptolemy I right.

Rev: Head of female (Libya) right

11 mm., 1.34 gm.

I have tried my reference material and I cannot find the coin anywhere (from the Ptolemaic Kingdom).

Can anyone help me, please?

  • Topcat7 changed the title to Ptolemy IX, or X, or even I ??

In Coins of the Ptolemaic Empire (Part 1 - Bronze), Lorber lists this chalkous as B489 under Ptolemy III. But for this group of bronze issues she also notes "Their production probably continued into the reign of Ptolemy IV and possibly much later". The identifying mark is a single cornucopia oriented to the right under Libya's chin.
