Previously attributed to Commagene (BMC Galatia, p. xlviii and p. 112), these coins were given by Hill to Cyprus (NC 1917, p. 24) where they occur frequently. A date under Augustus, due to the type of the capricorn, is possible, though by no means certain. Attributed by Nicolaou, op. cit. to Commagene (AD 38-72): see nos. 587-90 and p. 117, where it is said that these coins are found sporadically, not in large quantities, on the island (but there are 24 specimens in Nicosia Museum). If the reverse of this coin is orientated with star above (to match obverse) it has a die-axis of 12, which is the same as other Cypriot coins of Augustus: see I. A. Carradice, ‘The Coinage of Roman Cyprus’, in (ed) V. Tatton-Brown, Cyprus and the East Mediterranean in the Iron Age (London, 1989), pp. 182-87.
