Juba II of the day.

Just picked up this little coin of Juba II. It is toned, slightly off centred and has a weak obverse legend. It also has an excellent portrait of the learned ruler with a pleasing reverse design and clear legend

This coin certainly deserves a response.  It is certainly a splendid example of presumably a very scarce issue.

That's a wonderful coin.  Congratulations.  For a while I was trying to collect all of Juba II coins, especially with Cleopatra Selene.  Here's mine, different dies.
