This is the first coin known for the king at Tarsus. It is especially notable for its use of a pi-control similar to that previously employed by Antiochus IX and Seleucus VI at the city. It is overstruck on a host coin that had this same control, but apparently a different legend. It seems likely that the host is either an unrecorded variety of Antiochus IX drachm or an entirely unknown drachm of Seleucus VI.
