A new rev. description for Severus

Septimius Severus, AD 193-211
AE 17, 3.35g
obv. AV K L C - CEVHROC
       Laureate head r.
rev. NIKOPOLIT PROC ICT.
       Altar with basket (cista mystica?) from which a snake is coiling up
ref. a) not in AMNG
      b) not in Varbanov
      c) Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2018) 8.14.47.31 corr.
emiliyan_pavlov, Ebay, September 2018

This type was described as "altar, on which snake is coiling, head l." This new coin has far the best preserved rev. I have seen. And now my suspicion that the old description is not correct is proven. It can't be a snake alone because there are structures above the altar not compatible with a snake. So I think it is a basket or a similar container in which the snake is coiling up.

Leu Numismatik, Web Auction 6, Lot 481, Dezember 2018

Was described in error as "Bear walking r." Because of the raised tail I think it is rather a lion than a panther. Because of the missing mane I vote for a lioness.

A lion? mmmmhhh... sure not a bear!

Yes, Jochen is the expert for Nikopolis. I don't collect these coins, but it's great when employ so much.

Thank you! The Coinage of Nikopolis is one of the most important tasks in my life.

@nummis durensis
If you take a closer look you can recognize the typical underjaw of a lion if his mouth is open. Because the mane is missing I think it is a lioness.
