Denomination : AE drachm.

Size : 12.6 x 15.8 mm. Weight : 3.36 grams.

Grade : VF with a dark brown patina.  Slighty brassy metal showing on the high points.

Reference : Morgan 25. Mitchiner Ancient #713.

It should be noted that Morgan attributes this type to Orodes I, while Mitchiner attributes it to Orodes II. We have gone with Morgan's attribution as the style of the obverse portrait is more consistent with other coins of Orodes I.

Obverse : Bust of the King left, with an anchor symbol behind, with a dot in a crescent above the anchor.

Reverse : Bust of Fortuna left, with a cornucopia to the right.
