obv. Deultum, Severus Alexander
very rare, F, dark green Patina

A remarkable coin:
(1) rev. undoubtedly from Nikopolis
(2) obv. undoubtedly Severus Alexander
(3) but Severus Alexander has not issued coins in Nikopolis
(4) rev. Greek legend, obv. Latin legend
(5) Latin legends occur only in Deultum (for Moesia)
So this is a hybrid of an obv. from Deultum and a rev. from Nikopolis, an ancient Imitation!

F+

The bust of this obv. die is always slightly draped on the l. shoulder. Therefore the following types should be corrected:
- No. 8.14.4.7 (Athena)
- No. 8.14.9.11 (Nike with biga)
- No. 8.14.38.15 (Tyche)
This obv. die seems to be one of the rarer ones.

This coin differs from the other types with Asklepios/Hygieia mainly by the position of the revers legend.
