Great set of coins, AlRashid. Wow. It's good to have you posting here. Fyi, your Phraataces tet has a nice clear date (as perhaps you already know): December 2 BC.

Thanks Bob for comment and providing the date on Phraateces . You are very knowledgeable on coins and specially parthians it is my honor to know such a collector like you. By the way just keep it between us this phraateces coin comes from a very well known parthian collection of famous contributor to parthian coins who has written few articles on parthia.com
