Re: Rare AE Seleukos ??
- I haven't been able to find the exact coin either, but I would guess
that it belongs to Seleukos I. The obverse, a rather singular
3/4-profile of Apollon, seems to have been used by Seleukos I and
Antiochos I, and Seleukos also struck several coins with bulls, perhaps
to accompany myths about him wrestling a stray sacrificial bull. Here is
an example of the obverse from Snible.org
<http://snible.org/coins/bmc/syria/2.html> (coin no 12).
