Zeus Ammon on Ptolemy IV Hemidrachm
Zeus Ammon portrait by master die artist. In unusually high relief and expressive style. Uncommon for this type (~ 35mm, 35gm). Issued ca. 220BC at Alexandria mint. This is one Zeus that looks like he really might just get up and step right off the coin or turn around and have something to say of great mythological significance :)

a very lifelike, although somewhat forlorn looking Zeus.

Eye popping deep tone and exquisite detail on Zeus.
