Denomination : Billon stater.

Date : ca. 75 to 50 B.C.  Most likely in 56 BC. 

Reference : Spink (British) #16 (class III).  Hooker : Group K of Series Y. Sear (Greek) #110.

Size : 20.3 X 21.2 mm. Weight : 5.32 grams.

Grade : VF/F but a large chip has been taken out of on side.

The way the part has been chipped on the right edge of the obverse looks very much like a nose and mouth on the head, but there are simply a ragged area on the break.
