Hi All!

Just got offered 3 coins from a dealer in Europe like quite cheap, but I think they are fake. Anyhow as I'm far from expert can you please help a bit. I know the pics aren't good but this is all I have.













Thank you in advance and Happy Easter!

Hello.
I bought this coin few days ago

I think i have already identify it, but the weight is wrong:

EGYPT. Alexandria. Hadrian (117-138). BI Tetradrachm.
Obv: AYT KAI TPAI AΔPIA CEB.
Laureate, draped and cuirassed bust right.
Rev: LI - H.
Hades enthroned left, holding scepter; Kerberos seated at his feet.
Diameter: 23 mm.
weight : 7.24 g.

is it the right weight (7.24g)  for tetradrach? it should be 13g.
or is it didrachm?

Please help me.

regards,

Yossi

Thanks a lot for your replies! So I think we settled the price the previous owner paid for it :-)
But the puzzle of the reference (similar to) D.B.M 2495 still remains :-(

My wild guess
DBM = Deutsches Bundes Mark = German Federal Marks (or possibly German bank marks) = Deutsche Marks. ähnlich would have to mean "equivalent to" rather than "like", which sounds possible though my German isn't good enough to be making such guesses. But if it was, then just track  back to when CHF 900 = DM 2495 and you've got the purchase date.

Andreas and fellow Germans, could this make sense?
