Commen

* This coin has on its obverse 2 characteristics which are not covered by the 10.xx types described.
1.) The pellet before the mouth
2.) The crescent plus insert seem to be a hybrid of the star-type 10.3 and the dot-type 10,4.
The reverse fits in the reverse types of 10.3 and 10.4

I am thankful to generous assistance that I have received for identifications of coins in this section from Mr. Pieter Anne van't Haaff whose book, Catalogue of Elymaean Coinage published by CNG (2007).
