I don't think you'll get much more information than was offered on the other thread where you posted this coin.  Undecided

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 that Alföldi postulated was celebrated every year on 3 Jan. at Rome in connection with the public vows that were traditionally undertaken on that day.

There's the article in the Celator mentioned by Helvetica and bits and pieces I found browsing the web. The problem is that the litterature could cost more than the coin.

Only speculating. The "navigium Isidis". Sarapis with a modius. The Nile representation of Egypt as exporter of cereals to Rome.
