A completely new type for Severus

Septimius Severus, AD 193-211
AE 26, 10.39mm, 26.17mm, 15°
struck under governor Aurelius Gallus
obv. AV [K L CEP] - CEVHROC P
       Laureate head r., slightly draped on l. shoulder
rev. VPA [AVR GALLOV] NIKO - POLEITWN PROC / ICTRON
       Demeter in long garment and mantle, stg. frontal, head l., resting with raised l. hand on
       burning long torch and holding in extended r. hand grain ears over cista mystica with
       raised lid from which snake is emerging l.
ref. a) not in AMNG
      b) not in Varbanov
      c) not in Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2018)
          rev. No. HrHJ (2018) 8.14.5.- (nicht gelistet)
          obv. e.g. No. 8.14.38.11 (same die)
       probably unpublished
coll. Hoeft

Because of the obv. the governor is Aurelius Gallus.

Now we have the following depictions of Demeter:
(1) Aurelius Gallus under Severus: Demeter with cista mystica 8.14.5.-
(2) Tertullus under Caracalla: Demeter with Modius with grain-ears 8.18.5.1
(3) Flavius Ulpianus under Geta: Demeter with burning altar 8.22.5.1

I suspect this might just be a coin of Geta, same dies as HHJ 2012, p. 248, third coin, but with the obv. legend extensively recut to name Caracalla instead. Note the die break in Geta's drapery below his chin, which also seems to be present on the possibly recut "Caracalla".

But this idea could easily be refuted if you can point to another untooled coin from the same obv. die and so of course with the same obv. legend of Caracalla!

Dear Curtis!

Thank you for your hint. Yes, I couldn't find this obv. under the coins of Caracalla which are depicted in Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2018) especially with the close ANT of ANTWNINOC. But there is no bust of Geta in HrHJ (2018) that matches this coin.

When you write "recut" then you think it would be a modern fake?

Jochen,

Yes, I am postulating recutting by a modern hand. If true the motivation is hard to understand, since altering the obv. legend from Geta to Caracalla would not significantly increase the coin's desirability or market value!

You refer to the coin of Geta HHJ 2018 8.22.9.3 corr., from the same rev. die (only I in exergue) as your possible new Caracalla. I would assume that this is the same specimen I am referring to, HHJ 2012, p. 248, third coin. Doesn't the obv. die show a die break in Geta's drapery below his chin? This is the Geta obv. die which I think may have been recut to Caracalla on the new coin.

Yours,

Curtis
