Two Eagles on Ptolemaic Coins as Representations of Co-Regency

Additional evidence that two eagles represent co-regency


Part 2a (Concurrence of two eagles/co-regency) has shown that there is a strong chronological correlation of co-regency with two-eagle coin production.  Also, during times in which there was no co-regency there are no two-eagle coins known.  These conclusions are reviewed at the end of Part 2a and can be viewed here.

 In addition to such direct evidence from chronological correlations,  further support for the co-regency / two-eagle hypothesis is found from consideration of an unusual type of Ptolemaic coin with three eagles.

The two-eagle hypothesis predicts that two-eagle coins would not be produced during a reign without co-regency.  A situation that tests this prediction has occurred.
