Ptolemaic Egypt coin ID


Recommended Posts

Were the workers at the mint drunk? It looks like Zeus sprouted a second head or is it supposed to look like this... What happened here? Lol Anyone have a clue on IDing it? It's around 20 mm btw

I see a second head sprouting offthe first! As well he has the horns of Ammon. Though I do see two eagles on the reverse.

If you have size and weight it would make it much easier to assist.

It's a weird one for sure. It is around 3 grams and has a diameter of 20mm around. There is a cornucopia mint mark. I tried to see something similar on this website but couldn't really find anything. It is likely a later piece
