The reverse reminds me of Demeter with torches driving a biga of serpents. There is such a type from Thessalonica.

But I am by no means sure, and I canīt find a head left.

I wish I could amalgamate them all into one decent example.

Regards,
Martin

Those are all great examples but I know what you mean.  I feel that way about my Arles FH

Thanks Shawn for your excellent explanation...I have resisted from doing anything with the coin for now, and shall leave it to do it's own thing  Smiley

Dear Collegues,
Any clues about this coin? It was found within Early Imperial context in Roman settlement on Vardar/Axios.
weight: 4,19g; diam.: 1,63cm
I would be grateful for any clues, as it is very important to interpret a key archaeological stratum.
PS. I'm sorry for poor quality photo, it still waits to be photographed by professional.

Thanks to Pekka, who has pointed me to this thread.

Hi SRukke!

Your coin is actually not in Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2015). Here is my attribution:

Moesia inferior, Nikopolis ad Istrum, Elagabal, AD 218-222
AE 27, 13.1g
struck under governor Novius Rufus
obv. AVT K M AVRH - ANTWNEINOC
        Bust, draped and cuirassed, seen from behind, laureate, r.
rev. VP NOBIOV ROVFOV NI - KOPOLITWN PROC ICT
        in l. and r. field RO - N
        Tyche, in long garment and mantle, wearing kalathos, stg. frontal, head l.,
        holding in l. arm cornucopiae and in extended r. hand rudder (without globe)
ref. a) AMNG I/1, 1972 var. (has in field R / ON)
       b) Varbanov (engl.) 4080 var. (= AMNG 1972)
       c) not in Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2015):
           rev. No. 8.26.38.18 (same die)
           obv. e.g. No. 8.26.38.22 (same die)

The back of the bust shows folds of the drapery, it is not cuirassed. But the flap on his r. shoulder is part of his cuirass.

So it is a new die combination. I would like to add your coin to Nikopolis Addenda #4.
Nina Hristova has recently mailed me that she will begin to work on the new 2017 edition in February. May be that the new edition will be published in May 2017.

Best regards
