Elymais. Arsacid dynasty. Unidentified King (uncertain dates)
van't Haaff 21.2.1-1 var. (pellets); de Morgan --; BMC plate XLII, 22-25; Sear GICV --; Alram --

AE unit (denomination undetermined), 1.73 g., 10.68 mm. max., 0į

Obv: Abstract bust facing right, details unclear.

Rev: Upturned crescent with dot above and below, all within wreath.

According to van't Haaff, too few of these coins are known to determine their denomination. Apparently, on the few coins that are known, too little detail on the obverse remains to obtain a complete description; the photo in van't Haaff is unclear. Those that are known to van't Haaff have three dots below the crescent and none above, although these coins appear as well with a single dot above and another below.
