This coin was sold with a wrongly transcribed reverse legend (NIKOΠOΛΙ ΠPOC ICΤPO); even so I believe it is probably from Nikopolis ad Istrum, 3.7g, 19mm, again with ... CE CEVHPOC and the simple NIKOΠOΛΙΤΩΝ legend, though on my coin the Ω is inverted.  But has anyone seen a left-facing Septimius portrait on any small-module Nikopolis issue?  It appears not to be in Varbanov or Hristova-Jekov (also no such issue recorded for Hadrianopolis or Markianopolis or for any -polis city in Isegrim). Thanks for having a go!
