SELEUKID EMPIRE. Antiochos VII Euergetes (Sidetes). 138-129 BC. AR Tetradrachm (31.5mm, 16.57 g, 11h). Seleukeia on the Kalykadnos mint. Diademed head right / Athena Nikephoros standing left; flower to outer left, branch (or tree) to inner left, ZH and unclear monogram in exergue. SC 2049.3 corr. (controls in exergue); Houghton, Seleucia, 17 corr. (A1/P3; control marks in exergue); HGC 9, 1067a. Find patina, light roughness, a few minor scratches. VF. Extremely rare, apparently the second example known of this issue.

From the MNL Collection. Ex Gorny & Mosch 220 (11 March 2014), lot 1426.

The ZH control in the exergue is not previously known for the issues of Antiochos VII at Seleukeia on the Kalyadnos, but are present on the first issue there of Antiochos VIII, who revived the mint after its apparent closure following the reign of the former.
