Diademed head of the king facing right, wearing the flat topped Kausia . rev. basilios antimachos.

filleted palm branch in his left.
Mitchiner 74, Type 127a. Bopearachchi  185, serie 4E. a rare coin of excellent style, sharply
struck, extremely fine.

The portrait coins of Antimachus rank with the best in the gallery of Hellenistic coin portraiture.
( see our coin ANT9).  they appear to be the work of the same considerable artist who was responsible
for those of Euthydemus I and surely those of Demetrius I. Antimachus with his typical flat hat, Kausia,
and often his mouth in a half smile calls himself Theos-God.
