Elymais. Arsacid dynasty. Unidentified King (uncertain dates)
van't Haaff 21.1.1-2; de Morgan --; BMC --; Sear GICV --; Alram --

AE unit (denomination undetermined), 1.45 g., 11.23 mm. max., 0

Obv: Bust facing left, side whiskers of one row of dots, hair tuft at back of head.

Rev: Anchor with two crossbars at top, all within wreath.

According to van't Haaf: (a) too few of these coins are known to determine their denomination; (b) the details of the bust are "unclear," yet this bust is similar to van't Haaff Type 19.1 (Prince A); and (c) the reverse border is a wreath whereas this border looks like the pellets that are typical on the borders of so many Elymaean types.
