Hello to all the Parthian people  Smiley I posted this coin in the Identification Help forum and Emanuele recommended I post it here. It is silver, 3.3g and 23mm * 25mm.

Thanks

Aryeh:

Is it possible its Phraataces (c. 2 B.C. - A.D. 4)
AR Drachm, 3.71g
Mint/ Ecbatana, undated
Obv/ bust left with diagonal square-ended beard, wearing diadem and three-band spiral torque; circular border of dots
Rev/ beardless archer wearing bashlyk and cloak seated right on throne, holding bow in right hand; below bow, seven-line Greek inscription ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΝ ΑΡΣΑΚΟΥ ΕΥΕΡΓΕΤΟΥ ΔΙΚΑΙΟΥ ΕΠΙΦΑΝΟΥΣ ΦΙΛΕΛΛΗΝΟ
- Sellwood 57.13

The difference is the little half moon ( crescentdot) on the left, so this mught not be right....
