Description:
Extremely Rare Cleopatra Hemiobol
Cleopatra VII of Egypt (51-30 BC). AE hemiobol (5.02 gm).
Struck in Patrae, Achaea, 32 BC. BACIΛICCA KΛEOΠATPA, diademed and draped bust of Cleopatra right / AΓIAC ΛYCΩNOC ΠATREΩN, headdress of Isis. RPC 1245. BMC 15. Extremely rare and likely the finest of 11 known examples! Nearly extremely fine.

From the Rubicon Collection. Ex LHS 96 (8 May 2006). Acquired from M&M Basel, 1973.

During the initial stages of the Actian campaign, Antony and Cleopatra used the port of Patrae as a staging base for their planned invasion of Italy. Their stay provided the occasion for the issuance of this coin, which combines a fine portrait of Cleopatra with a purely Egyptian reverse, the headdress of Isis. Unusually, the form of legend simply names Cleopatra but does not say the coin is an issue by or of her-- the traditional OY ending found on most royal Greek coins.
