Seleucid fives

 This week I plan on finnishing the seleucid fleet and these four quinquerremes are the first step towards that goal.

 The coin is a reproduction of a tetradracma cast in Myrina, a population located in the island of Lesbos, around 155-145 b.C. One face shows Apollo's head with laurels. The other has an Apollo "Grynios" holding a phiale and a branch, at his foot there is an amphora while behind him there's a monogram (caster?) and the name of the city: Myrinaion; all within a laurel wreath.
