ref. cf. Meshorer Nabatean 113
VF, black patina with sandy deposits

According to Meshorer שלמ (= whole) is a denomination, which then was ommitted because this denomination has well been established. The X above the crossing of the cornucopias is not mentioned by Meshorer.

"Now further variants of these bronze coins have been found (nos. 80, 81) which show the same sign X as the silver issue of year 29. We believe that this sign marks year 4 of queen Shaqilat and that this was the year of the currency reform when the new bronze type was introduced. In order to mark the changes, several features on the new coins were altered. Aretas wears a moustache, Shaqilat has a love-lock (as opposed to an earring), and the numeral 4 was added on both silver and bronze coins in the first year of the new issues. If 29 is the fourth year of Shaqilat then the marriage between Aretas and Shaqilat fell in his 25th year, which corresponds to ad 16."

From Forum Ancient Coins, thanks!

The rev. of this coin refers to the conquest of Massilia (Marseille) by Julius Caesar 1 year before at the begin of his war against Pompeius after a siege and a naval battle. Artemis Ephesia was particularly worshipped in Massilia, an ancient Greek foundation, and had its own temple.

The obv. is disputed. Today you often can read that the depicted portraits of the Hostilius coins represent Gallia and Vercingetorix. But that the Romans put on the obv. of their coins the portrait of their enemies would be very unusual. I went into the matter and actually these designations came into vogue not before the end of the 19th century, and of cause in France, when the French national sentiment was at its height. And naturally coins with the name of Vercingetorix are selling much better than without, especially today in the time of Asterix.
