Ptolemy of Mauretania (Greek: Πτολεμαῖος, Latin: Ptolemaeus, 1 BC-40) was the son of Juba II and Cleopatra Selene and the grandson of Cleopatra VII and Mark Antony. He was the last Roman client King of Mauretania, and the last of the Ptolemy line.

It's a late, perhaps Cypriot origin, Ptolemaic bronze. there is some ambiguity about precisely which ruler, but that really doesn't matter much. it's an interesting type that fits in with later (2nd-1st C. BC) crudely made bronzes. the Isis headdress on reverse to the left is also found on a series of tetradrachms (which have only 1 eagle, though). you could form an interesting collection of just these late 2-eagle types - there's one with isis headdress, one with a thunderbolt, one 'plain', etc. not sure what the various symbols mean, but they do all seem to fit together as a group that more or less look alike and I believe they all lack any 'leg monograms'. part of what makes these interesting is that you can see in them, their crude art and manufacture compared to the finely crafted coins of a century earlier, the decline of the Ptolemaic state.

Egypt, Ptolemy III (Berenike), Svoronos 105637 viewsSvoronos 1056, Ptolemy III. Depicting Berenike (wife of Ptolemy III) and an open-wing eagle on the reverse. It should have an inscription on the obverse, a little unusual for Ptolemaic coins, possibly too worn or corroded to see clearly on this one. These are thought to be issues of a short-lived mint in Northern Syria, possibly during the 3rd Syrian war of ca. 246-241BC early in the reign of Ptolemy III (partly a mission to rescue his doomed sister who married into the Seleukid royal family). There is a 'family' of about 10 bronze types which depict Berenike, different sizes variations. This type would have some letters to the left of the eagle, off the flan on this specimen.

Juba II et Ptolémée entretenaient avec le sud de l'Espagne des relations commerciales d'où ils tiraient notamment des lingots d'argent pour leurs monnayages.
Ici Ptolémée est magistrat de la ville de Carthagène avec le romain Apalus.

Carthagène a été fondée par les Phéniciens en 227 av. J-C sous le nom de Qart-Hadast (la ville nouvelle).
C'est pendant la deuxième guerre punique, en 209 av. J-C, que les Romains prennent la ville aux Carthaginois, et la renomment Cartago Nova (la nouvelle Carthage).

At this time,it is difficult to attribute this type to a particular Ptolemy,until more data is discovered but Ptolemy V is a good,educated guess...Paraphrased from PtolemAE.

Ptolemy XII 352 viewsSilver tetradrachm, VF, partial brockage
Alexandria mint

Obverse: diademed head of Ptolemy I right wearing aegis
Reverse: PTOLEMAIOU BASILEWS, eagle standing left on thunderbolt, wings closed, date LK left ( year 20, L appears as I) and PA right.

Svoronos 1867 (Cleopatra VII); BMC 113, 39-40 (Ptolemaeus XI), SNG Cop-.

Ex FORVM: "Rare partial brockage. A partial brockage occurs when: 1) one coin jams in the die, 2) a second coin is struck using the first coin as a die, 3) the first coin is removed, and 4) the second coin is re-struck with the die. This is an unusual circumstance of events. Clashed dies are more common. In clashed dies, the dies are struck against each other, creating a weak design of one or each die on the other. This coin is a partial brockage, not the product of clashed dies. The depth of the intaglio image, position in relation to the cameo image, and weakness of the higher points of the cameo image support the attribution to "partial brockage.""

SERAPIS was a syncretic deity made of Osiris and Apis. Introduced by Ptolemaeus
as state deity. Later he was the highest deity with reminiscence of Zeus and even Christ(!). Because of that he connected Eastern, Egyptian religion with the Western world. Replaced by Christianity, after a short attempt by Julian II.
