Gordian III AE26 Pentassarion of Odessos34 viewsOBV: AVT M ANTGORDIANOC AVG; Confronted draped busts of Gordian, laureate, and Serapis with modius on head and cornucopia to right.
REV: ODECCEITWN ('of the Odessians'); Coiled serpent with raised head and E ('5') in field.
Moushmov 1663 (ref. Wildwinds and Moushmov on-line)

The obverse inscription is incomplete on the coin but was taken from a die match to a pentassarion in the Wildwinds database. Odessos minted a very large coinage in the time of Gordian with at least thirty known reverse types listed by Moushmov for the Gordian/Serapis Pentassarion. The coiled snake motif is great and seems to say "Don't tread on me!" though the serpent also had allusions to health in ancient times. Unfortunately the reverse was preserved at the expense of the obverse by fusing to another coin.This coin has been added to the Wildwinds database.

Greek, Mithridates VI (The Great) as Herakles192 viewsPontic Kingdom, Thrace, Odessos, Mithridates VI Megas, 120-63 BC, AR Tetradrachm in the name of Alexander the Great, struck ca. 88-86 BC.
Head of Mithridates VI (the Great) as Herakles, wearing lion's skin headdress / ΒΑΣIΛΕΩΣ ΑΛΕΞΑΝΔΡOΥ.
(Reverse is of Zeus seated left, legs draped, confronting eagle held on outstretched right arm and grasping lotus-tipped sceptre, ΛAK before, OΔΗ (Odessos ethnic) in exergue.)
Callataÿ Group 3; Price 1192. Odessos ca. 88-86 BC
(30 mm, 16.04 gm, 1h)

This is amongst the last of the coinages in the style of Alexander the Great to be minted. In this final incarnation the portrait of Herakles was adapted to the features of Mithridates VI the Great, to the extent that the image of Herakles is in fact a portrait of Mithridates. Comparison with his portrait on tetradrachms minted in Pontus proves this point.
