Ref:SNG Spaer 1870
Good very fine.

This series with a distinctive style and fabric is attributed by Spaer to an unknwon mint probably associated with the mint of Antioch. It has now been reattrubuted�as a Cappadocian issue�by C.Lorber and A.Houghton�in Numismatic Chronicle�as a posthumus issue of Antiochus VII struck by Ariarathes VIII,� Ariarathes IX or Ariobarzanes I.The control letters are linked to drachmas of Ariarathes VIII dated years 1-2 ( c.99-98), Ariarathes IX IX dated years 1,2 and 4 ( c.99-98, and c.96 BC) and drachmas of Ariobarzanes I dated 2-3,5-6(?) and 16 (c.94-93, c.90-91(?) and c.80 BC)
