I’m thinking about Eunus (a.k.a. King Antiochus of Sicily) today and that led me back to this unique coin. Unique coins are a problem. And this one has a friend. Another unique coin. Another problem. They are listed as Enna 15, 16 by Campana.
I don’t want to repeat Morton 2009. Other than to emphasize this opinion:
“Andrew Burnett and Keith Rutter, on the other hand, regard both coins as fakes. (Personal Comment, July 2008).”
All I have to add is what I think the likely inspiration of both coins may be. RRC 335/1 or 2 (late 90s Crawford, 91 BCE Mattingly).
This same reverse was resurrected in 59 BCE by RRC 421/1.
