year (L) IH = 18 (=64-63 BC or 34-33 BC), PA to right

Listed as Alexandria mint, though the "PA" to the right suggests it was minted in Paphos, Cyprus.

IH is year 18 and in this context it is ambiguous - either 64BC (modern scholars like Morkholm, Noeske, etc.) or 34BC (Svoronos).

Hence this issue is either Ptolemy XII (modern interpretation) or Cleopatra VII ruling with Ptolemy XIV, Ptolemy XV or Ptolemy XVI (Svoronos interpretation).
