I ordered this coin continuing to fill out more of my Sicilian Greek coinage sub-collection that I've recently found a spark of interest in. So, as you might have assumed, I bought this initially with the belief that it was from Sicily and was listed as such struck by Hieron II. I received it yesterday and started to do more researching on ACSearch and found similar coins... but to my confusion, they were listed as Ptolemy II, and... well, I guess it had that common type with Zeus and and eagle, but it had more of a similar Greek-style Zeus to the Mamertine coin I recently shared. I decided to go to CNG to research a bit more there, and came across this listing describing that this type has recently become to be thought of as more probably being struck in Sicily by Hieron II imitating the Ptolemy type. So, as with any Ptolemy coin, I ventured to the Ptolemaic Bronze site to see if I can find out more from Wolf & Lorber. On their site, they had a section where my coin was discussed as being from Sicily imitating Ptolemy II and many styles/types of it shown. Additionally, on the home page they linked to an offprint article (The ‘Galatian Shield without "Σ" Series of Ptolemaic Bronze Coins) studying and presenting some very convincing evidence towards it being stuck by Hieron II. I'd recommend downloading the PDF and flipping through it. Here is my new coin: Syracuse, Sicily imitating Ptolemaic Issues of Ptolemy II Philadelphos in Alexandria, Minted under Hieron II, Ruled 270-215 BC AE Litra (Sicilian value), Uncertain mint in Sicily, Struck post-reform circa 264-263 BC Obverse: Laureate head of Zeus right (Sicilian Portrait Style B). Reverse: ΠTOΛEMAIOY BAΣIΛEΩΣ, Eagle standing left on thunderbolt, with wings spread; oval shield to left, control mark A to lower right near eagle tail; all within solid circle border. References: Svoronos 615, Wolf & Lorber, ‘Western Greek’ Style, Subgroup 3, H69 (A42/P56) Size: 27mm, 18.3g Anyways, I learned a lot from this departure from the normal "finding it on ACSearch" and had some fun in the process. Also, I thought I'd share another Sicilian coin that was ordered and delivered with the above coin: Syracuse, Sicily Hieron II, Ruled 270-215 BC AE Hemilitron, Struck circa 275-269 BC Obverse: ΣYPAKOΣIΩN, wreathed head of Kore left; poppy-head behind. Reverse: Bull butting left; above, club above Δ; IE in exergue.
