Ryro Posted July 1, 2022 · Supporter Share Posted July 1, 2022 (edited) Some coins we get for their historicity, others for their beauty and others still we get due to their baddassness! And sometimes all 3!!! As witnessed by my Bull snack from today's Demos auction: Pylaimenes II/III Euergetes(Circa 133-103 BC). AE. (4.18g 18mm) KINGS OF PAPHLAGONIA. Facinghead of a bull.Rev:ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ - ΠYΛΑΙΜΕΝΟΥ / ΕΥΕΡΓΕΤΟΥ./ Winged kerykeion.SNG BM 1555. SNG vonAulock150 "The issuer of this coin was almost certainly Pylaimenes III Euergetes, son of the Bithynian king Nikomedes III Euergetes (c. 127-94 BC) - as their shared epithet suggests." I'd love to see your bulls! No bullshit! So, please post em up along with any thoughts or other coins of Paphlagonia or a perfect trifecta coin!
