Outstanding, thank you Andrew. It is in fact specific coin from the list.

Thank you

Just be aware that Ted Buttrey at the Fitzwilliam has no resources other than himself, neither staff nor money. He's usually very happy to answer these single references requests but in the case of repeated or extensive requests, he might suggest you visit in person or a donation to support catalogue purchasing, stationery etc may be appreciated. This is the same Ted Buttrey who excavated Morgantina in the 1950s so he is not as fast on his feet as he used to be.

All the Fitzwilliam's catalogue and fixed price lists are listed in a pdf directory on the Fitzwilliam website, so that should be the first place to look with a related query.

 They have the largest collection in the world. The coverage is near 100% on auction catalogues, rather less on fixed price lists.

I note also a blundered legend below Zeus on the reverse. Not a good sign.
Can you provide photos of the edges to see if there is a casting seam?
Also, provide the weight, as this could be important.

Hi I bought this coin a while back and have never been able to identify it.  The coin came from Afghanistan and looks like it has a date. (something 15)  The only Alexander coins I can find with a date come from Sidon.  The style does not match and the x in circle  and the owl eyes by the right shoulder.  Additionally the name Alexander is missing a letter.   Anyone got any ideas.  Thanks Anthony

Hahn tentatively attributes this type to Rome mint but states that they are in fact imitative issues (p. 25) because stylistically speaking they cannot be attributed to any known mint. It's a rare coin in any case.

Hi Kevin this item is part of a belt buckle from the post medieval period. A belt would have had two of these and they were connected with an S-shaped belt hook. Here is a British-found buckle from the 18th-19th Century- http://www.ukdfd.co.uk/ukdfddata/showrecords.php?product=34694&title=s-shaped-belt-hook&cat=178

These items are often listed on eBay as "Roman" with a variety of identifications.

The next two examples depict Heracles with Cerberus, Heracles' 12th Labor. "Eurystheus ordered Hercules to go to the Underworld and kidnap the beast called Cerberus (or Kerberos)." This vicious 3-headed beast guarded the gates of Hades. ". . . A monster not to be overcome and that may not be described, Cerberus who eats raw flesh, the brazen-voiced hound of Hades, fifty-headed, relentless and strong."
Hesiod, Theogony   310.

Hi Kevin, this item might be a drop handle for a a chest. But that is a speculation on http://romanlocks.com/Chestlocks.htm#Chest_Handles. Check out item 5240 and see the text for it.
