BMC Greek# 11
Reginald Stuart Poole; 1876. A Catalogue of the Greek Coins in the British Museum / Volume 2. Sicily. British Museum, London, United Kingdom.
And 26 more volumes.
Head right, diademed, with full beard; countermark on neck; sometimes a monogram in front of the head.
Herakles seated left on anvil-shaped seat, holding club with right hand; inscriptions downwards on right and left, monogram above arm of Herakles, below arm a letter; date in exergue.
Coins are listed in the BMC Greek under Attambelos III; however, later finds attributed them to Attambelos IV.
Varieties of obverse countermark and obverse/reverse monograms are known and were listed by Dobbins.
Despite knowing the date should appear in exergue, most of the coins have the date off flan or illegible.
