Comments From my personal collection, ex-Malloy.

This coin appears to have an UNLISTED LEGEND. On the drachms of Gotarzes I, the last word of the legend is written in the nominative: NIKATOPOΣ. However, here it is in the genitive: NIKATOPOV. In addition, the previous word is rendered differently also: ΘEOΠATOPI ... a cross between Sellwood's legend i and legend iv, in that there is a distinct pellet (representing O) after the T, but the last three letters (POΣ) have been reduced to two vertical rows of dots.
