Denomination : Silver obol.  Mint : Uncertain mint in Eastern Arabia.

Size : 10.0 x 10.3 mm.  Weight : 0.63 grams.  This is a fairly small coin.

Reference : Potts (The Pre Islamic Coinage off Eastern Arabia) # 60. An imitative coin derived from Price #3958.

Grade : aVF.

Obverse : A lump with just vague features representing a very crude head of Herakles, copied from the coinage of Alexander the great.  This is how this particular type was minted.

Reverse : Zeus seated left, holding an eagle, with a few lines behind him that probably derive from an Alexander inscription, with a vertical letter "shin" to the left.  This reverse type is copied directly from the Alexander type tetradrachms minted about 200 BC in Bahrain at the mint of Gerrha mint, Price #3958.
