Elymais was a semi-independent state of the 2nd century BC to the early 3rd century AD, frequently a Parthian vassal, and located at the head of the Persian Gulf in the present-day region of Khuzestan, Iran. Elymais was conquered by Ardashir and became part of the Sassanian Empire. Very little is known about Elymais other than infomation yielded from its coins.

According to van't Haaff, the differentiating feature for Phraates' coins is the decoration of the tiara with one or two pellet-in-crescents. He notes that this feature is not always visible, and assigns to Phraates all coins with the eagle reverse type. He describes the bust in Type 14.2 as wearing tiara and dotted rim, one or two diadem bands below tiara with two pellet-in-crescents. None of these features are not visible on this coin, on which the bust appears to only be wearing a diadem.

These symbols are not present on this coin. Tracing the probable arc of the pellet border, there does not appear to be space in the off-flan fields to accommodate these symbols, or, for that matter, to accommodate a chin/beard.

ELYMAIS_Unidentified_King.jpg
Elymais. Arsacid dynasty. Probably a contemporary regional counterfeit struck during the reign of Prince A (late 2nd to early 3rd centuries A.D.), or later.48 viewsvan't Haaff --; De Morgan --; BMC --; Sear GICV --; Alram --

AE unit (denomination undetermined), 2.51 g., 12.59 mm. max., 0į

Obv.: Bust facing left, side whiskers as double row of dots.

Rev.: Plain diadem of two bands with fine lines, pellet border.

The obverse bust most closely resembles Prince A (late 2nd to early 3rd centuries A.D.), van't Haaff 19.1.1-1A, whereas the reverse mirrors Phraates (early-mid 2nd century A.D.), van't Haaff 14.4.1-2). Due to the decades between these rulers, the coin is probably not a mule. The coins of Phraates may have remained in circulation during the reign of Prince A, and beyond. The coin is probably a contemporary regional counterfeit inspired by the Phraates reverse. However, the diadem on the reverse is a reference to sky god Bel, and the possibility that the coin is an unrecorded official coin, issued by Prince A with the revived iconography of Phraates, cannot be excluded.

According to van't Haaff, too few of these coins are known to determine their denomination. Apparently, on the few coins that are known, too little detail on the obverse remains to obtain a complete description; the photo in van't Haaff is unclear. Those that are known to van't Haaff have three dots below the crescent and none above, although these coins appear as well with a single dot above and another below.

According to van't Haaf: (a) too few of these coins are known to determine their denomination; (b) the details of the bust are "unclear," yet this bust is similar to van't Haaff Type 19.1 (Prince A); and (c) the reverse border is a wreath whereas this border looks like the pellets that are typical on the borders of so many Elymaean types.

Obv: Bust facing left, side whiskers, hair tuft at back of head

Rev: Upturned crescent with dot above and below, all within wreath

According to van't Haaf, too few of these coins are known to determine their denomination. Further, on the few coins that were then known, too little detail on the obverse remained to obtain a complete description, other than that the bust faces right. There are now sufficient examples from which to do so. This coin is unusual in that the bust faces left. Those that were then known have three dots below the crescent and none above. Yet the type appears to be more common with one dot above and another below.

Rev: Bust of Artemis right, wearing kalathos. Retrograde Greek legend

GICV 5892
Note: Elymais was a small kingdom occupying the hilly region between Babylonia and Persis, maintaining a quasi-independence of its powerful neighbor, the Arsacid Kingdom of Parthia. With the fall of the Arsacids, however, Elymais was conquered by Ardashir and became a province of that prince's new Sassanian Empire. Very little is known of the history and chronology of this kingdom other than the information yielded by the coins themselves. (taken from Sear's GREEK IMPERIAL COINS AND THEIR VALUES)

ELYMAIS_15_3_1-1_Osroes.jpg
Possibly Elymais. Arsacid dynasty. Osroes (1st quarter of 2nd century A.D.). Probably Parthia. Osroes I (109-129 A.D.).36 viewsvan't Haaff 15.3.1-1; de Morgan --; BMC -- Sear GICV --; Alram --

AE (Elymaean) obol or (Parthian) chalkous, 1.91 g., 12.22 mm. max., 0į

Obv: Bust facing left, with long beard and hair dressed in Parthian fashion, with a large tuft behind the face extending to the back of the head, topped by a large tuft bound with a diadem, its tips streaming behind; pellet border.

Rev: Diademed female bust (Tyche, if a Parthian emission) right; possible traces of inscription (date) to right; no border.

Van't Haaff recognized that "the attribution of Type 15 coins has been controversial" and notes that de Morgan, Le Rider and Alram have posited that they are issues of Osroes I of Parthia. Hoover agrees with these scholars, "[d]espite their appearance in the French excavations of Susa." He notes a stylistic affinity between them and Sellwood Type 80. This coin apparently appeared in association with Elymaean bronze coins in a commercial hoard, and not in the French excavations referred to by Hoover. Bell retains these emissions in the Elymaean series, but questions whether there was a separate Elymaean king Osroes. Rezakhani tentatively concludes that the Elymaean and Parthian Osroes are in fact the same person.
