ATTICA, Athens. 87/6 BC. ∆ Chalkous (17mm, 8.15 g, 12h). Mithradatic War issue. Struck under Mithradates VI of Pontos and Ariston. Helmeted head of Athena right / Zeus striding right, preparing to cast thunderbolt; to right, star within two crescents. Kroll 97;

But Athenas head on my coin is to the left.

Well maybe someone knows better?

Here is my coins info:
Bronze AE20
Adv: Helmeted ( i think) head of Athena looking left.
Rev: Zeus striding right, preparing to cast thunderbolt; to right, star within two crescents. (Well it looks like there is a star)
Seize:20 mm
Weight:6.91 gram.

Thank you for your time and help.  Thumbs Up

Cheers Kim

Have seen some Athens bronzes with similar reverse.  Also resembles a small bronze coin attributed to Ellis (see photo below).  Perhaps the obverse figure of your coin, lacking a typical Athena helmet, is Apollo.  Reverse appears to have a very large tripod at left and maybe a large THETA at right.

the same same REV not the same OB

...yes, altar is the same on REV, but the legend is different on both reverses too ...have a look where PP is placed in both cases on reverse... it's important feature in proper attribution of this type

Finding a coin which fills a coin in one's collection is always worthy of COTD Wink

 Thumbs Up

Hopefully folks here will forgive the condition!
