I was  wondering if someone recognizes this small Hadrian provincial coin? It weighs 3.1g and has a diameter of 19mm. Whatever it is on the reverse comes to a point at the top of it. It looks like an ear of corn with one peel remaining and the rest of the husks at the bottom, or it looks like a rocket taking off with the door open. Any help would be very much appreciated!

Dear Pete B and Board,

You have a gorgeous Tyana harpa issue of Hadrian, RPC III 2956A:

Like many coin issues of this Cappadocian city, this type was largely unknown to numismatics until just a few years ago. 

Hope this helps.


Best regards,
