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.

Ottima moneta, venditore serio e spedizione veloce, il dito su è d’obbligo!
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.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.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!
Just received the coin. Well packaged. As advertised. All good. Many thanks, Jacek Chyczewski
Wonderful coins, the seller sent everything quickly, carefully packed. A pleasure dealing with them.
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.
