Hierapolis (Mambij, Syria) -
IEPOΠO ΛEITωN , bust of laureate Apollo right.
ETZ[...] = year (..)7 , lyre.
13 mm

I suppose this autonomous small coin was minted in the IInd C. This Apollo looks very much like the Apollo playing cithar who was worshiped in Daphne, Antioch's main sanctuary. He must be the Greek version of some northern Syrian traditional young male deity.
