Here's a funky one.. :)

(1/2) > >>

featherz:
Any thoughts? Double struck or double headed? :)

Rupert:
Geryones??

featherz:
Hmm.. http://www.theoi.com/Pontos/Geryon.htm

Could be! Since I hadn't seen this one before that's the big question. Is the reverse intentionally like that or is it just an error strike? :)

Rupert:
Sorry for making my response so very short; I didn't want to be impolite, but Geryones really was only a very vague idea in lack of better ones. The coin, however, does not really seem to be double-struck to me.

I was also thinking of a former thread in which we discussed a Herculian labour (Antaeus), but the posture of the bodies on this coin doesn't fit for Hercules and Antaeus. See: https://www.forumancientcoins.com/board/index.php?topic=15610

Best regards

The enclosed picture is from a paper of Roberto Pace, "Baris e le sue monete". Unfortunately caption just says "deity with two heads and four arms".
