Hoard: Gaziantep Hoard 1994 (CH 9, 527; CH 10, 308)

This coin was recorded by E. Levante in Beirut, but either the control or attribution is in error. No other known tetradrachm with the epithet Soter  has this control, although a similar control occurs on SC 1625, an unattributed issue of Cilicia or Northern Syria that lacks the epithet.

The coin is listed here under Antioch as a placemarker.
