I like the coin. I am curious, what would a coin like this be graded? This one is well worn, but is a beauty to my eye.

Mostly likely "good" in the ancient coin grading scale. I wouldn't call it about VF.

Thanks for the comment though.

Hi Mat!

I doubt that it is the Tyche of Antiochia, although this can often be read in the descriptions. It is rather the cow-headed(!) city goddess of Nisibis.

Best regards

My latest addition is a scarce Spain, Castulo , Sphinx.

Unlike the common type, this one is the "Æ Heavy Unit".
