The reverse is so completely wrong in so many ways.  The coin is concerning on the highest of levels.

Looks like a modern cast, wrong style and fabric.  I don't even think i've ever seen that type of portrait on any ptolemaic silver. 

What is it being sold as?

I'm too. If it is not fantasy, a portrait seems like Nikomedes of Bithynia, or not?

What is it being sold as?
"Guaranteed genuine tetradrachm of Ptolemy II"  Grin

P.S. This seller looks like candidate for Black list, take a look at his other listings:
http://shop.ebay.com/kremerzahar123/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p4340

and completed: http://completed.shop.ebay.com/kremerzahar123/m.html?rt=nc&LH_Complete=1&_fln=1&_ipg=&_trksid=p3911.c0.m283&_rdc=1

I really love his Syrakuse dekadrachm  evil

Fake coin report please (for his other fakes too).  The seller is going on the notorious list.

I would have thought he's already on there, he is very notorious on the German forum.
Not the slightest doubt he belongs on the list.
