    Looks like I got 1 lot in Roma today, though I paid a bit of a premium on it. Blown away on the other. Still, this looks like a great piece for the type and I love the toning.

    Mysia, Pergamon AR Cistophoric Tetradrachm. Circa 166-67 BC. Serpent emerging from cista mystica; the whole within wreath / Two serpents entwined around bow and bowcase; monogram and KT above, civic monogram to left, serpent-entwined thyrsos to right right. Kleiner, Hoard 38; SNG Copenhagen 435; SNG France 1741. 12.44g, 27mm, 12h.

    Near Mint State.

    When I look at this coin, I hear in my head the snake charmer flute song.

    It's well centered and extremely well struck for the type. I also love that the flan is quite large at 27mm.

    Gorgeous @kazuma78 .....I was very close to bidding on it, but I am prioritizing Roman coins. Yes the price was a bit high, but I think it was worth it! Congrats!
