Comments

 

Historically this is an interessting coin. While Sellwood identifies 30 type series for an unknown king, Shore attributes it to Orodes I. However, in CNG's Triton VII, Dr. Assar states that it belongs to a king, he calls Arabanus (II). One type (#30), three different attributions. The plate is full for future reasearchers!
