This coin was overstruck on a tetradrachm of Mithridates VI Eupator, king of Pontos in circa 120-63 BC, with his forehead and nose still visible in front of Artemis on the obverse.  +
"Overstruck on a tetradrachm of Athens (head of Athena visible on the reverse, portions of the owl visible on the obverse); very rare thus, Kraay (in Greek Coins and History) noted only 7 examples known."  +
"This coin was overstruck on an earlier issue of Apameia in Syria (HGC 9, 1419): the head of Zeus is still visible on the obverse whereas the reverse shows an elephant standing tothe right and parts of the legend (AΠ[AMEΩN] / TH[Σ IEΡAΣ] - KAI A[ΣΥΛOΥ] / Σ[...]). Unfortunately, the date is not fully readable, but it is likely ΣE = SE 237 = 76/5 BC"  +
"This coin is overstruck on what appears to be a late Hellenistic tetradrachm in the name of Lysimachos (some letters of basileus can be seen to the right of Dionysos on the reverse, as can the remains of a seated Athena). Exactly which issue it is has yet to be determined"  +
