SNG Spaer 1243v, Antioch Mint, VF+, 31.8mm, 16.59grams. 

Son of the evil Antiochus IV. Antiochus V was a child when his father died and ruled under the eye of the regent Lysias who was the general sent against Jerusalem. Jewish freedom from Antiochus V is commemorated in Megillat Taanit. His short rule and issue make his coins exceedingly Scarce. This is an excellent sharply detailed coin, large and with excellent metal.
