Sounds essentially like a dead-end given that the listings go back - what?  A year or so?  Coincidentally I see another 21.2 variant, this one with a single pellet above, and a single pellet below the crescent, just listed today.  Without records going back beyond 90 days, at best a snapshot of a small sampling could be made.  If all records had been available, a more substantive picture might have emerged, perhaps even with some die linkages determined.

Alas, I wish I had more time for the research this would entail - even for the snapshot version.  I just have too much on my plate.  Retirement can't come soon enough...

I was very happy to discover, and add to my collection, an unrecorded drachm of Prince A (late 2nd to early 3rd centuries A.D.). The coin is a van't Haaff 19.1, but has an anchor to the LEFT, unlike the coins recorded by van't Haaff, which either have the anchor to the RIGHT or no anchor at all:

Seriously well done, Steve.  Amazing how many variants of known types have been emerging in the past couple of years.  If van't Haaff had these available prior to its 2007 publication, his book might have been quite a bit thicker!  Congrats on an important addition to your outstanding collection.

I recently added two drachms issued under Prince B (3rd century A.D.) to my gallery. The first is a van’t Haaff 20.1.1-1A (reverse with Athena standing right) and the second is van’t Haaff 20.1.1-1B (reverse with Athena standing facing forward, head to left):

Ah, Prince B, he of the mushroom cloud upper hair tuft.  Good pick-up's, Steve...well done.  One of the less common Elymais Arsacid Dynasty kings.  His coins seem to appear less often (in sales/auctions) than many of the other later kings.

Thanks, Bob. The Athena facibg forward with head to the left is the less common of the two. Stkp

I just added three Elymain drachms to my gallery:

Uncertain Early Arsacid Kings (late 1st century B.C. to early 2nd century A.D.), van't Haaff 10.4.2-3. The coin APPEARS to be a reverse of a "highly degenerated style" but not quite "dashes of irregular style" (in which case it would be a van't Haaff 10.4.2-4A):

Kamnaskires-Orodes (early-mid 2nd century A.D.), van't Haaff 12.3.1-2B1:

Phraates (early-mid 2nd century A.D.), van't Haaff 14.1.1-1C var. This coin is particularly interesting because the two pellets-in-crescent are very large and the tiara is borderless. As such, it appears to be an unrecorded variety:

Any thoughts/comments would be welcomed.

Happy Thanksgiving.
