Laodicea ad Mar, loop up from drapery on Julia Domna denarii
Laodicea ad Mare is today Latakia, Syria. It was a Phonecian town, refounded by Seleucus I Nicator 301-281 B.C. and renamed after his mother, Laodicea. Coins of Julia Domna from the Laodicea mint can be identified by the loop coming up from her drapery at the neck.

Is it the P-looking loop?

Yes, the P-looking loop.

Did all of Domna's denarii have this loop, if from Laodicea ad Mare? Or just the PVDICITIA issues?

As far as I am aware it is all the AVGVSTA one from Laodicea
