Commentary


.
Pour le règne d’Ariarathes IX, on connaît des drachmes de l’an 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 12,13 et 15. Pour les drachmes de l’an 3 qui étaient inédites, et qui ont été réattribuées par O. Morkholm à Antiochus IX, il faut se reporter à l’article des essays Robinson, The Coinage of Ariarathes VIII and IX of Cappadocia, Oxford, 1986, p. 248, pl. 31, série 9 pour notre variété avec trente-deux exemplaires, quinze coins de droit et vingt-six coins de revers.
