Reference MIG 615 var, Senior 202.1a
Comments A nice example of Senior 202.1a, which has the Gondopharid countermark on an undertype of Senior 201.6, the "local Theopater" issues. It may well be an issue of Gondophares himself, since it just precedes his own issues and bears his countermark. A rare coin, especially in this condition!
