Denomination : Silver tetradrachm   Mint : Tigris (Babylonia)

Date : after 305 to 295 BC.

Reference : Sear-6829 variety, Houghton 941.

Size : 27.5 x 28.7 mm.

Weight
: 17.62 grams (very heavy for one of these).

Grade
: gVF with a nice style, but a trace of minor rough patches.  Better than the image suggests.  The heavier and thus slightly larger than usual flan allows for far better centering than usual.

Obverse : Head of Herakles right, wearing the lion's skin.

Reverse : Zeus seated left, holding a sceptre and eagle, with SELEUKOU  to the right, and BASILEWS below, with Greek letter monograms in the lower left field and below the throne.
