GREEK, Ptolemaic Egypt, Ptolemy II, Alexander in Elephantskin
AE25 12.83gm 12h
Ptolemy II ca 270-260BC
Sidon Provincial Mint - Obol
Svoronos 763
Unusually nice condition and portrait style for the Alexander-in-Elephantskin type. Wear ordinarily obscures the Ammon horn which here is visible through the skin headdress. Unusual type that appears to conform to post-260BC weight categories but lacks central depressions, a bit of a conundrum in this type.
