Comments

Zapiti & Michaelidou 2 var.

This coin´s obverse die is linked to an issue of Sidqmelek, also with the facing head Athena reverse type. However, those coins also have the name of the king on the reverse, which is not present on this issue. Thus, due to the die wear on the obverse, it is possible that this may be a coin of an unknown king that succeeded him.
