MA93694. Silver drachm, Ceka 325 corr., BMC Thessaly p. 71, 94, Dyrrhachium (Durrės, Albania) mint, 2.349 grams, 18.1 mm, obverse ΜΕΝΙΣΚΟΣ, cow right, head turned back toward suckling calf left; on right: Harpokrates standing facing wearing hemhem crown, finger to lips; reverse ∆ΥΡ − ΛΥ−ΚΙΣ−ΚΟΥ, double stellate pattern within double linear square with sides curved inward; estimated value: $60.00

This type circulated alongside, and presumably at parity with, Roman Republican denarii. BMC calls the figure on the right side of the obverse a statue. Ceka identifies it as a female. The figure can be identified as Harpokrates by the a hem-hem crown and right index finger up to the lips.
