Ptolemy II Philadelphus (309BC-246BC)             
Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt. Arsinoe II, wife of Ptolemy II, d. 270 BC. AR Dekadrachm (35.53 g) minted posthumously under Ptolemy II, c. 253-246(?) BC. Veiled head right of Arsinoe II, wearing diadem and stephane; in left field, “MM”(?). Reverse: Double cornucopiae bound with fillet. Cf. Troxell (ANS MN 28) plate 7, 7; cf. Svoronos 947. Having absolutely none of the usual flan cracks. At 6 o’clock on edge there is a silver chloride spot. Some luster remains. Extremely Fine. This example is a bit garbled at the issue mark behind Arsinoe’s head; it seems closest to “MM”, by which it is being catalogued. These issues with control marks were previously thought to be a year-dating, before Hyla Troxell’s revealing ANS article.
