Denomination : Bronze hemiobol.  Mint : Merve mint.

Size : 28.3 x 28.8 mm.  Weight : 11.65 grams.

Reference : Mitchiner Ancient - 1638. SNG ANS 209-211.

Grade : XF with very good patina and surfaces.

Obverse : Elephant's head, wearing a bell, right.

Reverse : Caduceus with BASILEWS DHMHTRIOY in two lines to the sides.

I have examined many of these that came on the market recently, and this is by far the nicest one I saw, with a combination of good patination, surfaces, a strong complete strike, and good style on the elephant head.
