Please help me with babyltetradrachm (Baal / Lion)

(1/2) > >>

Moritz S:
I found that coin in italy at the thyranian sea in the year 1980. I don't want to sell it, but I would like to know if it's a real coin or a fake.
It looks like a strange version of a babylonic tetradrachm.
On the main side it shows Baal seated to the left with a cepter in his right hand.
On the rear side it shows a lion headed to the left.
The motives are very rudimentary and I assume, that the coin is poured and not embossed because of it thickness.

Pekka K:

Looks like this:

What's about size and weight? For an identification this is indispensable.

At his level of similarity the genuine ones are perhaps also looking like the coin of Moritz  :).
But I also believe that this is a forgery  :(.



Moritz S:

thank you so much for your link. That's exactly what I needed (and expected)!
Now I am sure that the coin is a fake.

The link from Pekka is sufficent for me, you also believe this is a forgery.
So size and weight are in this case not indispensable.

Joe Sermarini:
