Unlike the issues carried in Seleucid Coins and SCADS70b, the portrait of SCADS70a is identifiable as that of Antiochus IV. SCADS70a shares its obverse die with the anepigraphic SCADS 71.
The same types continued in use into the first century B.C., when Mopsus struck autonomous coins with a Seleucid portrait (apparently not Antiochus IV) and a tripod.
