This is the best preserved coin of this scarce type. All others are incorrectly described, because the palm branch in the l. field is not visible. Altogether an unusual depiction.

Tetrastyle temple with crenulated columns, triangular pediment, acroteria decorated with floral elements and shield(?) in field; within male figure,
nude(?), stg. frontal, head l., l. hand lowered, resting with r. hand on staff
ref. a) AMNG I/1, 2086 (1 ex., Paris)
b) Varbanov (engl.) 4229
c) Hristova/Hoeft/Jekov (2013) No, 8.36.46.6
scarce, about VF, dark brown patina

Pick: The image of the deity is despite its good preservation not identifiable for sure; Svoronos took the figure for female, I like Sestini held the figure for male. Wether the object on which his r. hand is resting should be a shield, is doubtful too; Svoronos thought it was a column. Sestini wanted to see a bearded (?) Ares, who was resting with his r. hand on a shield and with his l. hand on a spear. However a reliable deomination is impossible.

Hristova/Hoeft/Jekov calls the figure "Herakles". It can well be that the figure is not nude but has the lion's skin over his l. shoulder and the lion's scalp on his head.

RIC III, p. 359: "In this year falls the reform of the calendar of Commodus, who renamed some of the months. Hence come the type of Janus in a shrine and of Jupiter Exsuperator with the branch of peace: 'Exsuperator' was the name for the month December."

Jupiter Exsuperator was the highest god in Commodus' scala of gods. The beginning of a kind of henotheism (Chantraine,1975)
