Seleucid Empire, Antiochus VI Epiphanes, Drachm

This drachm features the Seleucid ruler Antiochus VI (c. 145-142 BC) as sun god Helios: the sunrays are not attached to the diadem of the king, but arise directly from his head. This expresses that Antiochus did not want to be worshiped as Helios – but that he himself was Helios.
