Date : ca. 3rd to 2nd century BC.

Denomination : Silver tetradrachm.

Reference : Sear-212 variety

Size : 27.2 x 28.5 mm.  Weight : 16.32 grams (heavy for these).

Grade : VF with an attractive old toning, but the metal does have a very  slightly porosity.  The strike is over all better than average for these.

Obverse : Head of Herakles with considerable detail for one of these as on many specimens is just a simply lump.

Reverse : Zeus seated left, holding an eagle, with two monograms below his hand, and with a crude Greek inscription to the right which is based on the name of Philip but corrupted to the point it is only a group of lines.
