Greek Antiquity - Cappadocia Eusebia. AR Drachm of commemoration of Ariobarzanes I Philoromaios (95-63 BC), Athena & Nike, RARE

Cappadocia. AR Drachm of Ariobarzanes I Philoromaios (95-63 BC).
Mint Year: Year 22 - 74/3 BC
Mint City: Eusebia
Description: Æ Drachm
Reference: Simonetta 30b
Ruler: Ariobarzánēs Philorōmaíos, friend of Rome
Weight: 4,07 g
Diameter: 17,5 mm
Material: Silver

Obv: Head of Ariobarzanes I right, wearing diadem.

Rev: Athena standing left with right hand supporting spear and shield, and left hand outstretched supporting Nike left, holding wreath; BAΣΙΛEΩΣ to right, APIOBAPZANOY and monogram to left, ΦΙΛOPOΜAΙOY below, all within wreath.
Legend: BASILEWS ARIOBARZANOU FILORWMAIOU

Extremely rare and important. Of the few known examples of this coin with reverse filleted border, one is known in the Simonetta collection, as well as one in the ANS, the Danish National Museum and the Cabinet des Médailles. This extremely rare reverse type with filleted border was probably issued in commemoration of Ariobarzanes I’s restoration to the throne by Lucullus. It is the key drachm to the Cappadocian series.

The high resolution images provide a good impression.
Lot will be sent by priority registered mail with tracking number.

    A moeda ,embora sendo a mesma , não corresponde às fotos; as fotos apresentam brilho e a moeda não tem o que faz com que o valor seja diferente. O vendedor admitiu saber logo é VIGARICE.

    Response by seller
    I rather kill myself then work with such rude person. I was kind and tried to solve problem as better as it can be solved. He spitted on me and my silver gift coins for nothing like he has them kilos. When you talk to him is same if you talk to a wall. But you know, no matter how professional we are we encounter such bad buyers time to time, luckily most of my buyers were extremely happy with purchase so that is most important to us and not such rotten eggs as this one. Thanks to all those good and kind buyers that left me positive feedback, wish that half of others would do the same then I would have plenty of nice and cheerful feedback. For 16 years I sell only items that are from the taken pictures displayed 1000000%
    LaZooRo is a professional seller and there is no place for a irresponsible behavior and work!

  • Transaction went perfectly smoothly. My only reservation being the coins in the photographs were dark, what I would expect from Crusader deniers but were quite silvery and had probably been cleaned.
