    Here are two from my collection that are nice looking Ptolemy III coins with Zeus obverse. Nice larger, heavy coins. The one with the eagle reverse is 21.5g and the one with the statue of Aphrodite is 15.8g. Both coins were minted sometime 246-221 BC.

    What's the significance of the central counterpunch? I see this on a lot of examples online.

    Counter marks on circulating coins. Similar to chop marks on silver coins
