Obverse: Melqart, holding reins and bow, riding hippocamp to right above two lines of waves, dolphin to right, below

Reverse: Owl standing to right, head facing; crook and flail in over left shoulder, date (in Aramaic 10 - 340/339 B.C.E.) on right

Nice detail on this early historic coin. Photo contrast is strong. Toning lighter and more even in hand and has nice eye appeal!
