Benefactor robinjojo Posted August 1, 2022 · Benefactor Benefactor Share Posted August 1, 2022 (edited) Here's a very odd coin that was offered to me last night. The seller is asking $2,500 which I think is way overpriced. The coin, a tetradrachm patterned along the lines of Ptolemy I's Alexandria coin's is clearly an imitation. The question is from where and is it legitimate? The weight given to me, of 14 grams, is in the correct range, but the style is very crude and the reverse legends appear to be blundered. Initially I thought it might be a coin from one of the Celtic tribes, but now I think the coin might be Arabic in origin, possibly northern Arabia. Has anyone encountered this type?
