Kings of Paphlagonia, Pylaimenes Euergetes, c. 140 - 89 B.C.

|Paphlagonia|, |Kings| |of| |Paphlagonia,| |Pylaimenes| |Euergetes,| |c.| |140| |-| |89| |B.C.|, |AE| |18|
In Greek mythology, Pylaemenes was the king of the Eneti tribe of Paphlagonia (a much earlier king, not the king named on this coin). He claimed to be related to Priam through Phineus, as the latter's daughter Olizone was married to Dardanus. He led his Paphlagonian forces to the Trojan War, as a Trojan ally. Pylaemenes was killed in battle by Menelaus of Sparta. He had a son named Harpalion who was killed by Meriones, son of Molus.

The King Pylaemenes Euergetes named on this coin may have been Pylaimenes II (ruled c. 140 - 130 B.C.), who bequeathed his kingdom to Pontus, or Pylaimenes III (ruled c. 108 - 89 B.C.), a son of Nicomedes III, King of Bithynia. The kerykeion symbolized peace and alliance and perhaps indicated that Pylaimenes III desired close relations with Rome.

|Armenia|, |Kingdom| |of| |Commagene,| |Antiochus| |IV| |Epiphanes,| |38| |-| |72| |A.D.|, |AE| |27|
Commagene was located in modern south-central Turkey, with its capital at Samosata (the site is now flooded by the Atatrk Dam). Antiochus IV was an ally of Rome against Parthia and the last royal descendant of Seleucus. He ruled with his half-sister and queen Iotape. He was deprived of his kingdom after accusations that he was conspiring against Rome. He retired to Rome where he was treated with great respect for the remainder of his life.
