SELEUKID KINGS of SYRIA. Antiochos VII Euergetes (Sidetes). 138-129 BC. Æ 14mm (2.74 g, 9h). Uncertain mint. Dated SE 174 (139/8 BC). Head of lion right / Upright club; H to inner left, ΔOP (date) below. Cf. SC 2068.1 (Antioch); Rouvier -. Good VF, dark green patina.

This type is only known at Antioch, but all bronze issues there only use the standard mint monogram (Δ over elongated I). The monogram on this coin (an M with central horizontal bar) is unrecorded for Antiochos VII.
