Description: Kingdom of Baktria. Plato, c. 150 BC or a bit later. AR Tetradrachm (16.91 g). Diademed bust right of Plato. Reverse: Radiate Helios facing in quadriga; in exergue, king's name; in right field, monogram. SNG ANS 627; Mitchiner (The Ancient and Classical World) 1743 var. (monogram on left); Bop. Série 1 var. (monogram on left). Extremely rare. Wonderful portrait. Nearly Extremely Fine. Son of Eukratides II, this appointed co-emperor's biography is, as yet, cloaked in mystery. What is certain, is that he minted tetradrachms with a new, and never-used-again reverse type. Another of the chief rarities of the Baktrian series. Estimated Value $30,000 - 35,000. Ex Triton XV (3 I 12), lot 1348. Categories: Ancient Coins
