Reference: Künker 94, 27 September 2004, lot 686.

Given that the weights of this coin (3.21g) and the three others previously published (SC 84, with Η to r.: Price 3705, 3.19g.; CNG 93, 22 May 2013, lot 489, 2.79g.; Triton 9, lot 1000, 3.40g.) do not conform easily to the Macedonian standard used from Archelaos through Philip II, another standard seems possible.
