As some people know, I have spent much time these recent years in the Parthian coinage. Discovering a Parthian coin which is not yet referenced is a great pleasure, then adding it on http://www.parthika.fr/T1.html (I wish it as complete and accurate as possible for drachms and tetradrachms). Below, a drachm of Orodes II of which I know only this specimen: ORODES II (57-38) Drachm, Margiane or Traxiane 3.99 g – 18,5 mm Obv. Bust to left Rev. Incoherent legend – Arsaces seated right – Monogram The monogram "N" on the reverse is very different from the N of Nisa. This is confirmed with the effigy, which recalls the S.45 specimens struck at Margiane, and also to a lesser extent those from Traxiane (the eye). The style of the reverse and the legend are also found identically on a drachm S.43.9 from Traxiane (CNG 400, 413). By studying these coins, we can verify that the production of Margiane and Traxiane is at least partly to be attributed to the same engravers. This drachm was therefore struck either at Margiane or Traxiane. So why a monogram that looks like an N is one of the countless mysteries that make this coinage so interesting.
