Septimius Severus, 9 April 193 - 4 February 211 A.D., Stobi, Macedonia
None of the references describe this bust. Josifovski identifies all dies for Severus with the Victory left reverse as laureate, draped, and cuirassed but this coin (and his coin 126 from the same dies) is not draped or cuirassed. We believe there is the slight trace of an aegis on the far shoulder. Varbanov references Josifovski.
