    PERSIS KINGDOM. Artaxerxes (Ardaxshir) II (ca. late 1st century BC). AR hemidrachm (15mm, 2.08 gm, 5h). Choice VF. Persepolis. Diademed bust of Artaxerxes II left, wearing mural crown and three-ringed torque / Persian-Aramaic legend, king standing left before altar, holding scepter. Sunrise 595. Alram 571.

    On the obverse, it appears as though there are two small pellets behind the bust, along with a ghosting of a legend in the left field and possibly a caduceus in the right field, all of which may indicate this coin was struck over a host coin.
