Bronze coin of king Perseus of Macedon, 179-168 BC.
This coin has a counterstamp, I believe of a prow.
I couldn't find any other prow counterstamps online. Perseus and his father Philip V struck other coins with prow types though. Is there an online database of counterstamps? I searched ISEGRIM and found Roman coins of the 2nd and 3rd century AD with prow counterstamps, but nothing Hellenistic.
A recent eBay auction of another countermarked Perseus had a similar countermark that could be a prow but could also be almost anything.
