Comments This coin has an unusual crude style. One notable feature is that the front leg of the reverse throne has been reduced to a dot. From my personal collection, ex-Tom Mallon collection. Published on his website, The Coins and History of Asia, the fourth coin (as of April 2009) under Vologases II:
