Note The reverse is very similar to that of 'far away' Side, as noted by Imhoof-Blumer. The unexpected obverse die link with Side suggests that this coin may not be genuine, but has been made out of a coin of Side, as https://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/type/62497 (or perhaps the reverse of https://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/type/62480, although that reverse is not yet known with the same obverse die).  The reverse design has been misunderstood and the original two prize crowns (or the Nike and prow) have been rather crudely reengraved into two rectangular objects. In  addition, the countermark (of  Side) is not otherwise known at Isinda. No other coins from Isinda are known with ΙΑ, and the size and weight are anomalous at Isinda, but normal for Side.
