pedigree:
ex Harlan J.Berk

Imitation of a gold stater of Lysimachos (323-281 BC), struck to pay the Thracian mercenaries of Brutus, the assassin of Julius Caesar, for his campaign against Octavian and Marcus Antonius. The style more crude than the original. There is an alternative interpretation: Issued under Mithridates VI, 88-87 BC.

Abgar was king of the kingdom of Osrhoene at the Upper Euphrat in Mesopotamia, situated between the Roman and the Parthian empire. The inhabitants, the Orrhoei, were relatives of the Nabataeans. Their capital city was Edessa. This name has been given to the city by Seleukos I Nikator referring to the capital of Makedonia.

This coin needs its own number.

A similar rev. is known for Macrinus, AMNG I/1, 1789, pl. XX, 40. Pick writes: "stalk of a plant(?)". It is certainly not the club of Herakles. I think it a cypress twig because of its similarity with the twig which Elagabal holds in his hand when he is sacrificing over an altar on some Imperial denarii.
