From FORVM Ancient coins: Oliver Hoover, in Coins of the Seleucid Empire from the Collection of Arthur Houghton, attributes this type to the Cappadocian Kingdom, c. 130 - 80 B.C. The symbols were used on Cappadocian royal coinage, the coins are found in Cappadocian hoards and a tetradrachm naming the Cappadocian King Ariarathes VII Philometor (116 - 99 B.C.) bears the obverse portrait of Antiochus VII. He notes they may have been struck to pay foreign (Syrian?) mercenaries who preferred the types of Antiochus VII.

'CNG notes on a similar coin:

Ares slew Halirrhothios, son of Poseidon, for assaulting Ares' daughter, Alcippe. The site where Ares came before the gods for judgement, escorted by Dike (Justice) and the herald Hermes, became the Areopagus (Hill of Ares) in Athens, the location of the Athenian law courts. Ares was absolved of murder. It is unknown why this event had such import for Syedra, but the scene appears frequently on its 3rd century coinage.

In fact, as Johannes Nollé and Margret Karola pointed out*, it is known why Syedra issued coins with this scene: In late Hellenistic times the inhabitants of Syedra suffered from repeated assaults of pirates. In these dangerous times, the people of Synedra contacted the oracle of Klaros for help and received the advice to erect a statue of Ares bound by Hermes and being judged by Dike in their city. This statue would protect them against the assaults of the pirates. The base of the statue with the inscription of this action was found during the excavation of Syedra.

Obverse countermarked with female? bust right, cf. Howgego 207 (Tyche). Another option could also be the head of Hadrian and applied during the Second Jewish Revolt ("Bar Kochba" uprising) led by Simon Bar Kochba against Rome, 133 - 135 A.D. In 135 A.D., Hadrian destroyed Jerusalem and founded "Aelia Capitolina" on the site. The Jews were dispersed throughout the Roman Empire.

temple token from Antioch, Asklepios / serpent staff, AE1531 viewsSyria, Seleucis and Pieria, Antioch(?). Ca. 120-130s A.D.
15mm, 3.25g

'temple token' . Head of Asclepius right / Serpent-entwined staff. Butcher 12i; SNG BN 1855 (Pergamum).

long assumed to be from Pergamum in Mysia but accd. to Butcher Antiochene or of north Syrian origin.
'During the reign of Domitian there was constructed on the slopes of Mt. Silpius at Antioch a temple to Asclepius. Since the coins carry no ethnic or mark of denomination, it seems plausible that these were issued as temple tokens rather than as coin of the realm.'

McAlee, Coinage of Roman Antioch, p. 85, Fig. 14.
"Could be from Antioch, of Hadrianic date, judging from apparent find spots and officina letters A, B, G on some specimens, the same sequence as on civic coins of Antioch under Hadrian. Not included in catalogue, however, because lack of ethnic and date suggests they might be tokens not coins." (paraphrased)
