From Forum Ancient Coins, thanks!

Pick writes in a note: It is uncertain, wether the figure wears a kalathos or a mural crown on her head; but probably Concordia is meant and not the City Goddess, because the latter would hold a sceptre instead of the cornucopiae.

I think it is not a branch but only the typical long fingers of his r. hand. And RIC has misinterpreted flow lines as "radiated head".

This is the first Roman imperial coin showing Serapis in his standard position (There is a coin from Domitian with Serapis in a temple too).

In the times of Caracalla the games called Asklepieia Sotereia Pythia, games in honour of Asklepios, took place in Ankyra. Because Caracalla suffered of serious sickness he visited these games. May be that this coin mentions games in honour of Asklepios too.
