Notes:     (1) Agora Auction 35: Lot No. 172; (2) RPC records seven specimens of this rare type, but there has been at least one additional example to appear on the market in recent years. Seyrig missed the type in his corpus of the mint (H. Seyrig, "Le monnayage de Ptolémaïs in Phénicie," RN 1962, pp. 25-50), at the time not realizing the coin was from Ake-Ptolemaïs, but later cited two specimens in "Monnaies hellénistiques," RN 1969, pp. 47-9, nos. 47-8, fig. 9. (3) From the Kenneth Miller Collection of Ake-Ptolemaïs and Related Biblical Coins.
