Bit of help needed to identify an interesting Greek Ae


Recommended Posts

Been trying to identify this Greek Ae for too long and I'm ready to give up. Just can't find anything close to it. Hoping someone can help me out.

Here it is:

Obv; Standing figure (maybe Dacia) holding staff surmounted by head of ass; A PEYC or similar to right

Rev: Seated figure (probably Apollo) with right hand raised; IVC - KA IOC (?) around

Size: 19.6mm, 4.4gms

The standing figure seems to be wearing a Corinthian helmet?

The diagonal pattern on the robe of the standing figure is pretty distinctive looking and should be a good clue.

Does not look familiar to me...

Thanks! That's it. I've been into ancients for over 25 years and had never seen this type before. Of course, there's probably a whole lot more that I've never seen. That's what makes it interesting.
