Salem Alshdaifat:
this is the type i like about ptlomey, what you think is it acoin or a war weapon????

Salem Alshdaifat:

I have one of these, but it is in poor shape - it was damaged by Bronze Disease; they would make a great weapon, 10 in a leather bag would be near leathal.


Salem Alshdaifat:
heheh ,it is realy so heavy at hand, to buy some thing with 20 of those coins you need a slave to carry the money bag for you ;D

I always thought of it as the ancient paperweight, escpecially when you approach the 48mm+ sizes  ;).
