Diademed bust right of Ptolemy I Soter ( founder of the dynasty).
Reverse.ΠΤΟΛΕΜΑΙΟΥ ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ, eagle standing left on thunderbolt, in front date LIH= regnal year 18 (= 64/63 BC), behind mint signature ΠΑ.
Ref:Sv.1865, SNG Cop.389, BMC pg.119.36,37, Noeske 345,346.
About extremely fine.

The mint signature ΠΑ on this die appears to have been re-engraved.

The mint signature ΠΑ is that of ΠΑ(ΦΟΣ) Paphos,Cyprus.Noreasonableexplanation has been put forward why the mint ofAlexandria adopted thePaphian mint signature.The two issues can easily be seperated by theirdistinct style; in the case of Ptolemy XII the crowns of Egypt andCyprus were seperate.Ptolemy XII ruled Egypt and his brother ruledCyprus, for the first time under the Ptolemies,as an indipendentkingdom.
