1 Oktadrachm    (sold for $6250.0)

Description: Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt. Arsinoê II, wife of Ptolemy II, d. 270 BC. Gold Oktadrachm (or Mnaieion; 27.74 g) minted posthumously under Ptolemy VI-VIII at Alexandria, c. 180-116 BC. Veiled head right of Arsinoê II, wearing diadem and stephane; in left field, "theta". Reverse: Double cornucopiae (cornuacopiae) bound with fillet. Svoronos 460; Troxell (ANS MN 28) plate 6, 2; SNG Cop 134. Some light scuffing. Attractive portrait. Choice Very Fine. While on a trip to Greece, walking through narrow streets on Mykonos, we stumbled upon a placard that mentioned that the particular house before us was the birthplace of Jean Svoronos. The array of white, sun-drenched buildings hurt our eyes, they were so bright! Estimated Value $6,000 - 7,000. Categories: Ancient Coins
