Provincial Ae to identify
« on: September 11, 2019, 02:53:30 PM »
I got it among a collection of greek and provincial coins from Anatolia (mostly from Troad and surrounding area) but I didn't succeed to identify this one.
3.15g / 20mm

Observe : Draped bust of ?, right. Some letters seem to remain under the bust.
Reverse : Front view of a hexastyle temple with globe in pediment. Lettering : ...CΑΝΔΡΟ (*sick* or ΑΝΑΖ ?) ... and ?Є? in exergue.

From the reverse side I almost got something with the city of Anazarbus, but no perfect match and it would be a bit unconsistent with the rest of the lot.

Since what you read as C is significantly smaller than the other letters, I propose to read the script the other way around, which would be something like GYNYP O. Not that this yielded any candidates...

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
