Help needed to identify this coin, please?


Recommended Posts

I have this small Greek coin that, despite my best efforts, I am unable to attribute in any way.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

It weighs 3.45gm., and is AE14.7mm.

Thank you. (in advance)

I realize the obverse is rather male-ish looking, but might be worth looking at issues from Laodiceia ad Lycum with Aphrodite on both obverse and reverse. Might be a rose at reverse lower left. Or not...

Thanks, Bob. In the absence of any other alternatives, if this is what you were suggesting, I may have to go with that, although the rose has me 'concerned'.

Yes, TC. That's what I had in mind, but I have no strong commitment to the ID. It may well be wrong. But, in any event, here's one posted by Paul (Spaniard) at CT, along with a side-by-side of the concerning "rose" from his and yours. Not sure if yours is a rose, a letter, or some other motif.



Here's what appears to be another similar rendition of the motif, from N&N London:
