CNG calls it "cup". That's possible and would fit Dioynsos but is IMHO certainly not clear.

For the reverse. CNG and Corpus Nummorum call the things Tyche is holding  kantharos and grain ears.

yes Ralf,

that comes very close if not spot on
same is seen on the Leu specimen https://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/coins/3/736

i'll go with the description of Corpus Nummorum
River-god and city goddess; to left, river-god reclining right, resting right arm on water-urn, holding reed in left hand; to right, city goddess standing facing, head left, wearing long garment and kalathos, holding cantharus in right hand and two ears of corn in left hand.

Hi oki,

That's an interesting coin. It's "different".
