Rare silver drachm of Artaxerxes II (ca.60 BC), Persis. HUGE coin, probably overstruck on a Roman Republican denarius!
Diademed bust of king left, wearing crown of Persepolis, monogram right / King attending fire altar, legend around on four sides. 23mm, 3.85 grams. Alram 573; Sear 6212.
Huge flan! The coin was found with a group of drachms (all of Artaxerxes II) all seemingly overstruck on Roman Republican denarii. Even though this coin does not show any undertype, the extremely large and thin flan probably indicates that this coin is overstruck on another coin (probably a Roman Republican denarius)
