Comments
A group of coins was discussed by David Sellwood in 1989. He attributed most of them to Persis mints including this one. However Shore, following the presence of the mint monogram, attributed it to Ecbatana. It seems there may still be an alternative explanation as to where these coins were made in the middle of Parthian civil wars.
