Tetrarchy of Chalkis, Coele Syria, Lysanias, 40 - 36 B.C.
RIC notes, One would expect the portrait to be of Lysanias, but the monogram suggests the portrait is a posthumous portrait of Ptolemy. RPC also notes that the diademed portrait is surprising as neither Ptolemy nor Lysanias had the rank of king.
