Elymais, don't know enough of these to name the king.

I believe the coin is a drachm of Orodes III of Elymais. The attribution and succession of these kings is not well known. The coin dates from the late 2nd or early first cent BC, some date these coins into the 1st century AD. The reverse is not blank or ruined but a pattern of dashes and dots. I hope this helps.

Similar to GIC 5910 and I think that your attribution it is correct. Many thanks for your help
