SELEUCUS II

PERHAPS TEOS

Lanz 151, 30 Jun 2011, 528 what is cymbol cf SC 644-5

SC Ad 137 Corr.

Obv.: Diademed head of Seleucus II r. with long sideburn, dotted border.

Rev.: ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ on r., ΣΕΛΕΥΚΟΥ on l., Apollo standing l., testing arrow and resting l. elbow on tall tripod, no border.

Controls(?): TWO WINGS, ONE UP THE SECOND DOWN, ON LION-FOOTED PEDESTAL?

Reference: SC Ad 137 = Lanz 151, 30 Jun. 2011, 528,

The reverse is slightly double struck but the control is evidently not the leafy branch that was originally  recorded in SC. A sharper example is needed to determine what was intended. The apparent control may actually be a feature on the flan (an overstruck host coin?) rather than an intentional control cut into the die.
