Ancient Pamphylia is near the modern city of Belkis in Turkey.  The city was under Persian rule until Alexander the Great and after his death it was under the rule of either the Ptolemies or the Seleucids.  This coin celebrates the sport of wrestling and slingshot which were both highly practiced during Greek times.
