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.

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.
