New evidence indicates that the mint city was not in eastern cilicia but probably in commagene or
Western Mesopotamia. Tetradrachms like our one, with sharp - featured portraits of Seleucus 11, were
struck in connection for financing his Parthian campaign; one even shows the beginnings of the beard
he grew in the course of the campaign.
