This bronze of Seleukos II is quite scarce. Till the moment I have not seen a similar coin on the web or at salerooms.

Dear bakkar!

I admire your coins. But they are so special that I can't pass an opinion.

Wow! You sure have an eye for a memorable coin bakkar.

The artistry and patina have combined to give me the impression of both deity and bull looking at me like ghosts from the ancient past-  which in truth they are!

Best regards

Indeed Steve, the artistry on most Seleukid coins (silver and bronze) are remarkable.
The patina is dessert and thick. The coin was covered with hard rocky soil that I did not distinguish any detail before cleaning. It need further cleaning however.
