Logging this coin here for internet history as I have not run across one before.
Great letters and you see a lot of the Athena/Eagle series from this city but not this one.

PHRYGIA. Apameia. 2nd-1st century BC, Obv: Laureate head of Serapis right, wearing crown.Pileoi of the Dioskouroi within wreath. SNG von Aulock 3465; SNG Copenhagen 160; SNG München -.
19 mm 5.56 grams
Note from a past NN Auction reference I found interesting to pass along:
-->"Von Aulock and Copenhagen list the bust on the obverse as that of Zeus,but a clearer interpretation was provided by Hirsch 272, lot 352, where the Egyptian-style crown is visible, pointing toward an attribution as the bust of Serapis instead."<--
