Elagabalus, 16 May 218 - 11 March 222 A.D., Laodicea ad Mare(?), Seleukis and Pieria, Syria
This type is traditionally assigned to Antioch. Prieur suggests Emisa. McAlee identifies Laodicea as the most likely mint. McAlee interprets ∆ − E as "∆ EΠAPXEIΩN," meaning "of the four eparchies" and notes, "After Septimius stripped Antioch of its privileges and conferred them on Laodicea-ad-Mare, some coins of Laodicea bear the legend 'Metropolis of the Four Provinces,' and others have a representation of four Tyches. The letters DE also regularly appear on the coins of Laodicea from the time of Elagabalus to that of Trebonianus Gallus."
