EGYPT.ALEXANDRIA.Cleopatra III and Ptolemy X 107-101 BC.AR.Tetradrachm. ( 14.20g, 12h,)
Diademed bust right of Ptolemy I Soter ( founder of the dynasty).
Reverse.ΠΤΟΛΕΜΑΙΟΥ Β(ΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ), eagle standing left on thunderbolt, in front date LΙΒ over Θ (= 106/105 BC; regnal year 12 of Cleopatra III and regnal year 9 of Ptolemy X), behind mint signature ΠΑ.
Ref:Sv.1728, SNG Cop 359, BMC pg.112,20,21,22,23,Noeske 315-318, Paphos I 1010-1058.

Good very fine, obverse die flaw from edge 9h.

The mint signature ΠΑ is that of ΠΑ(ΦΟΣ) Paphos,Cyprus.No reasonable explanation has been put forward why the mint ofAlexandria adopted the Paphian mint signature.The two issues can easilybe seperated by the distinct style of the two mints; also no double dated Cypriot tetradrachms are known for this period.
