Description
Obverse: Diademed and draped bust Ptolemy V.

Reverse: PTOLEMAIOU BASILEWS, eagle standing left on thunderbolt.

Ptolemy V was the son of Ptolemy IV and Arsinoe III. He was only five when his father died and during his minority incompetent ministers lost much of Egypt's overseas empire. The king was crowned at Memphis in 197 BC, the same year that the Rosetta stone was inscribed. In 193 BC Ptolemy married Cleopatra I and died thirteen years later at the age of twenty-nine. - (C.4220)
