147-191 A.D. KINGS OF PARTHIA. Vologases IV. (My first Parthian.)


Recommended Posts

Recently I found that all of my 'Parthian' coins were actually Elemais (under the rule of Parthia) so I bought my first 'real'  Parthian coin.


147-191 A.D. KINGS OF PARTHIA. Vologases IV.  Dichalkon (Bronze, 15.4 mm, 3.77 g, ), Seleukeia on the Tigris, SE 475 = 163/4.

Obv: Diademed bust of Vologases IV to left, wearing tiara; to left, EOY.

Rev. Draped and turreted bust of Tyche to right; to right, 'A'.

Sellwood 84.144. Shore 632.
