Apameia Syria, 8 different dates on this coin.

The eight different dates that I have collected are:
Β, Γ, ΒΟΣ, ΕΟΣ, ςΠΣ, ΓΠΣ, ΖΠΣ, and ΕiΣ

These coins are usually attributed as Sear 5868 var. The Sear 5868 coin has the date ςΟΣ. Is there a reference to any of the other seven coins, which is date specific?
The eight coins are about 20mm and between 7 and 8 grams.
Obverse: Helmeted head of Athena right
Reverse: ΑΠΑΜΕΩΝ ΤΗΣ ΙΕΡΑΣ and ΚΑΙ ΑΥΤΟΝΟΜΟΥ either side of Nike advancing left, holding wreath and palm. Seleucid or Pompeian date to left.

Now you know!

Gamma Koppa Sigma

I just purchased a Γ9Σ (Seleucid year 293) or 20/19 BC. This has been a fun series to collect. I appreciate all the help I have received from members. Still hopeful of collecting the 14th and last coin in the series ΖΟΣ.

The Mini Collection is Complete

I just purchased a ΖΟΣ, RPC 4339, struck 36/35 BC. The coin is not in the best condition but it does complete the mini collection of 14 different dates. I do enjoy collecting ancient Greek coins which are dated.

Remarkable collection

You have made a remarkable collection. Probably no other collection holds all the dates!
