    PTOLEMAIC EGYPT. Ptolemy II (285/4-246 BC). AR tetradrachm (14.04 gm). About XF, scratches. Tyre, dated RY 8 (?) (276/5 BC). Diademed head of Ptolemy I right, aegis around neck; dotted border / ΠTOΛEMAIOY-BAΣIΛEΩΣ, eagle with closed wings standing left on thunderbolt; H above club before. Svoronos 637. SNG Copenhagen 478. This coin is listed as year 7 in Svoronos and Cohen includes it in Dated Coins of Antiquity in case additional evidence proves that the H on the reverse is indeed a date, as opposed to Lorber and Davesne who argue for it representing a control mark.
