    I do not have a portrait coin of Demitrios but only an AE13 and a tetradrachm of the same type. g92190bb0778.jpg

    My tet accurately depicts the protrusion of the prow on which Nike stands. Compare it to the marble shown by Terence Cheesman above. Many dies are more refined and flatten out this thick lump on the coins.

    Drachms are much rarer than tetradrachms.
