Indo-Parthians. Margiana mint. AE drachm. Sanabares (possibly c.50-65 AD, or else c. 125 AD). Obverse: King's head right, hair in distinct waves, crescent and star before. Reverse: Archer seated right, Margiana mint-symbol below bow, somewhat blundered Greek legend around "Basileos Sanabares" (Of the King Sanabares). Sellwood 93.1, Shore 477, Sunrise 503, Koch Group 8 or 9. This coin: Frank S. Robinson Auction 110, lot 111 (October 29, 2019). This coin type is the last one listed in the late David Sellwood's catalogue of Parthian coins, and after I tried to do some more research I can see why he shoved these troublesome coins into the back of the book. It was struck in Margiana, an area in the eastern Parthian kingdom in what is now eastern Uzbekistan, in the name of "King Sanabares" Traditional scholarship has placed Sanabares as a rebel against the Parthians and assigned him to roughly 50-65 AD. However, a 1990 ANS monograph by Heidemarie Koch, "A Hoard of Coins from Eastern Parthia" reaches a different conclusion. Based on careful analysis of a hoard of 266 copper coins in the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum, Koch divided the Sanabares bronze coins into a number of subtypes, issued over a period of many decades, and assigned the type seen here to the period c.125 AD, suggesting it was issued by a "Sanabares II". Her conclusions, however, don't seem to have been generally accepted, as neither Sellwood (1993) nor R.C. Senior in the Sunrise Collection (2011) cite her dates for the Sanabares bronze coinage. The situation, as far as I can tell, is even less clear than usual for Parthian numismatics. Perhaps someone will unravel the mystery in the future. Until then, please post your coins of Sanabares, other Indo-Parthians, or whatever else you can justify.
