Take a look at the thread on January 28 2014 by gordian_guy. The male figure most probably is king Pygmalion of Tyre. But it is still an enigmatic coin!

The portrait, the legend error and the unusual beginning of the rev. legend, suggest that this is a barbarian imitation.
It could well be Elagabal. But I tend to Caracalla.

obv. No. 8.18.1.22 (same die)

Whereas the obv. is tooled (hair, eye), the rev. seems to be a totally new phantasy depiction. It is difficult to say wether it shows Zeus or Serapis. The gap between GALLOV and NIKOPOLITWN has enough space for a former kalathos of Serapis but faint letters are seen too. Horrible

A nice elegant depiction of Apollo with remarkable long legs. Looks a bit manieristic.
Apropos: Referring to Ehling all coins from Germe are from Germe in Mysia. Wether there were another Germe too in Lydia is unclear.
