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.
