Excellent example of a rare
and interesting coin!
Lacking the legend VOTA PVBLICA
and being struck in Alexandria
, however, it has nothing to do with the festival of Isis
postulated was celebrated every year on 3 Jan. at Rome
in connection with the public vows that were traditionally undertaken on that day.
Only speculating. The "navigium Isidis". Sarapis with a modius
. The Nile representation of Egypt
as exporter of cereals to Rome
