This coin is rare among the Seleucid tetradrachms of the Hellenistic Kings who ruled what is now Syria to Afghanistan. His reigns were short, 145-138 BC and 129-125 BC which perhaps is behind the scarcity of coins with his likeness. He had the title Nicator which in Greek means Victor. A darkly toned coin with a detailed image of an enthroned Zeus on the reverse. Choice XF 4/2
