Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt. Arsinoê II, wife of Ptolemy II, d. 270 BC. Gold Oktadrachm (or Mnaieion; 27.67 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, "lambda". Reverse: Double cornucopiae (cornuacopiae) bound with fillet. Svoronos 476; Troxell plate 3, 4. Choice Very Fine. The gold mnaieion, or gold oktadrachm, of Egypt was equal to 100 silver drachms at this time, which points to a relationship of silver to gold of 12.5:1. There are few gold coin types of the ancient world which are as impressive. Estimated Value $6,000 - 7,000. Categories: Ancient Coins
