van't Haaff 2.1.2-1a (Plate Coin)

van't Haaff believes that Kamnaskires I and II are the same ruler. There is no evidence to suggest that they were two different rulers.

This is one of the coins that caused the change in the chronology of Elymais coins, because of the inscription in front of the bust. See Bell's article in The Celator, Vol. 16, No. 4, April 2002.
