Minted during the Libyan Revolt, this type is normally found on clearly billon flans, but coins occasionally appear on much higher quality metal. There are traces of the undertype visible, but none are distinct enough to suggest a particular issue, save for what appears to be the tail of a dolphin or hippocamp near the edge on the obverse, at the forehead of Herakles. The undertype must be of a similar weight standard. The only issue that seems to fit is the Ibero-Punic shekel with a male head on the obverse and a reverse featuring a prow facing right, below which a dolphin swims right (ACIP 543).
