Cornucopia Containing Fruit

 

Listed below are the known samples of this extremely rare coin of Karne with laureate bust of Zeus and Cornucopia containing fruit. I managed to find a further three coins in addition to the eight already published in Duyrat 2002, making twelve in total with my coin. The coins residing in the ANS numbered 1, 2 & 4 were not published with images so i was unable to determine whether or not they actually belonged to era date 73.

The top image shows the letters qoph, resh & nun meaning Qurn (Karne) and the bottom image shows Aradian era date 73 with daleph & ayin just to the left of the date.
