    I know who this Deity, who appears on the obverse of this Antiochos VIII coin, is, but I cannot think of his name at this moment.
    If you are able to tell me who he is, I would very much appreciate it. Thank you.

    Tyche rarely appears on Seleucid coinage as a bust. I can't tell what this coin is, but it is not Antiochus VIII.

    Tyche/Poseidon on prow?

    Maybe this helps:

    Coincidentally I was reading today a publication by Lorber and on page 67 she refers in the footnote No. 60 to Duyrat 2005: pp.66-70 (bronze series 7, Tyche/Poseidon on prow)

    Lorber Catharine C. Royal Coinage in Hellenistic Phoenicia : Expressions of Continuity, Agents of Change. In: Topoi. Orient-Occident. Supplément 13, 2015. La Phénicie hellénistique. Actes du colloque international de Toulouse (18-20 février 2013);

    or take a look here at coins from Arados
