This one wasn't easy to track down!

Phoenicia, Tyre
AE 21
Civic issue, time of Augustus
Veiled turreted bust of Tyche right, palm-frond behind
Galley sailing left, date ΡΚΓ (civic date 123; 3 BC); ΙΕΡΑΣ
BMC Phoenicia 252 to 267.




Seems to be a relatively scarce or rare issue; I can't find many in auction archives, unless this type typically does not sell individually?

This was the only one I was able to find on acsearch:

There is one more on Wildwinds.

Wow that is nice!

Thanks all! I'm increasingly tempted to keep this one for the collection

I'm going to solicit some opinions over at FORVM... I am increasingly perplexed at what appears to be diacritic marks above the epsilon and sigma in the legend... well before such symbols were supposed to be in use on coinage. I can't find similar marks on other bronzes from Tyre.

Also, the monogram is TYP, for Tyre.
