Head of Athena to right, wearing pendant earring, necklace and a crested Corinthian helmet adorned with two olive leaves (?) and a serpent coiled to right. Rev. ΒΑΣ-ΙΛΕΩΣ ΦΙΛΙΠΠΟΥ Nike standing left, holding wreath in her right hand and stylis with her left; at feet to left, ΔΙ above thunderbolt. Duyrat 874 (D13/R22) = Price P138, pl. XVI (same dies). Extremely rare, with Duyrat knowing of just two specimens, both struck from these same dies. Apparently the first issue of Philip III from Arados, struck from an obverse die in an unusual local style. About extremely fine.
