The Ptolemies in Egypt made up a group of gods to combine the Greek and Egyptian religions. This includes Serapis who looks a great deal like Zeus.  The Seleukids have here put Serapis on one of their "Egyptianizing" coins from the time of Antiochos' invasion of Egypt.  It has a Seleucid style legend and the eagle stands right, but it clearly mimics Ptolemaic coinage.
