ÞAONANOÞAOO OHÞN|- KOÞONO (sic), nimbate, diademed, and crowned half-length bust left on clouds, holding mace-scepter in right hand, filleted spear in left / APΔOXÞO, Ardoxsho standing left, holding cornucopia in both hands; tamgha to left. Cf. MK 357-9/365A (same obv. die/rev. type); Donum Burns -. VF, a few minor marks.

For this obverse die, Göbl incorrectly lists the legend as 3b. This example clearly shows that the inscription is slightly corrupt.
