Denomination : Billon tetradrachm.

Date : It is known that Kamnasires V ruled some time in the late 1st to early 2nd century AD, but the exact dates of his reign are not known.

Size : 26.8 x 29.4 mm   Weight : 15.52 grams.

Reference : GIC-5884.

Grade : VF with an exceptionally strong reverse.

Obverse : Helmeted head of Kamnaskires left, with a trident like symbol behind, and a star inside of a crescent to the upper right.  The style of Kamnaskires helmet is very similar to that worn by the the Parthian Kings on their coins.

Reverse : Uncertain male bust left surrounded by blundered Greek legends.  This is one of the nicest reverses I have seen on one of these.
