I sort of missed this large lot of Persis coinage you have put on display recently ! (to busy with work related things :P)
This Sunday morning, while taking a break from filling out my income tax forms, these provided a very nice intermezzo.
Thanks for showing !

I can understand the urgency of work and taxes!  Been so busy the past few weeks that it is bordering ridiculous.  Hopefully, things will start to cool down starting next month  :-\.  There are still tons of coins to post and translate, but just don't have the time...
