Cleopatra VII?

#1 Unread post by RomanGreekCoins » Sun Aug 19, 2018 7:43 pm

0.97 g.
11 - 12 mm.
Someone told me that it might not but but they arent sure

A class of small coins of Paphos with a female head on one side and double cornuacopiae on the other were attributed to Cleopatra VII in a 2004 book by dealer Matt Kreuzer. His conclusions have been panned by academics but a few dealers continue to hype the coins as issues of Cleopatra at inflated prices.

My question is is this Cleopatra VII?
thanks!

Possibly, but in this state, it won't be worth much.

The example I showed went for $123. I can make out lettering and some device details.

The reverse of the one you have shown is a cull. A complete guess. The obverse shows a non-descript bust, but the tapered edge may be enough to validate. I'd have to put this in cull range of ~$10. Too much "if".

As to single or double cornucopia, I'd have to read the book.
