Description

KINGS OF CAPPADOCIA. Ariobarzanes II Philopator, 63-52 BC. Drachm (Silver, 16 mm, 3.93 g, 1 h), mint A (Eusebeia-Mazaka), year 8 = 55 BC. Diademed head of Ariobarnazes to right. Rev. BAΣIΛEΩΣ APIOBAPZANOY ΦIΛOPATOPOΣ Athena Nikephoros standing left; [H in exergue]. Simonetta 2a. SNG Copenhagen 161. Lightly toned and attractive. About extremely fine.

The portrait on this coin shows us a rather insipid looking young man, which was, in fact, exactly what Ariobarzanes II was.
