Sold for $425. This amount does not include the buyer’s fee.

SELEUKID EMPIRE. Antiochos III ‘the Great’. 222-187 BC. AR Tetradrachm (27.5mm, 17.01 g, 12h). Uncertain mint. Diademed head right / Apollo Delphios, testing arrow and resting hand on grounded bow, seated left on omphalos; monograms to outer left and right. Unpublished, but cf. HGC 9, 447 for type. VF, lightly toned. High relief. Apparently unique.

From the MNL Collection. Ex Amphora 98 (undated [December 2010]), no. 169.

The portrait is extremely similar to that found on many dies at Antioch on the Orontes, but the style of the reverse is not consistent with issues from that mint.
