Elymais. Arsacid dynasty. Prince A (late 2nd to early 3rd centuries A.D.)
AE drachm, 1.54 g., 11.01 mm. max., 0į

Obv: Bust facing left, wearing diadem of two bands, row of dots above, side whiskers as double row of dots, hair tuft at back of head; to left anchor with at least one crossbar; pellet border.

Rev: Artemis standing right, holding bow in one hand, plucking arrow from her quiver with the other hand; pellet border.

According to van't Haaf, the varieties with a hair tuft are "always" accompanied by a dot or star in crescent above and an anchor to the right, although these symbols are often struck off the flan. This is an unrecorded variety in which the anchor is to the left.
