What has had the die cutter in mind when he cuts LONOGIN? Accidentally I got recently a coin of Elagabal from Nikopolis [HrHJ (2015) 8.26.7.9. corr.] with the same NO in ligation, but here in ANTWNINOC it has made sense. Nevertheless it is only the second time I have seen this strange NO where the O is added like a half moon to the preceding N.

A puteal was a wellhead or the place of a lightning strike. This place was considered sacred to Jupiter when the lightning occured by day or to a god named Summanus when it occured at night. The Puteal Scribonianum was located on the Forum.

Pick: Nike probably is writing the victory of the emperor on the shield of the tropaion. If we may regard this typus as local, since at least no Roman example is known, then we have to see Nike here not as goddess of victory but likewise as eponymous goddess of the city.

Scarce, about VF, dark green patina

(1) Usually Pick writes "Apollo (or Bonus Eventus?)". But here the deity is holding doubtless a branch with field crops. So it is not Apollo but Bonus Eventus! The description should be changed.
(2) The ligation of NO (very unusual!) in the obv. legend not mentioned.
(3) The dot in the rev. legend is very thick, like a small globe.

The exact significance of the type is not known for certain, but it obviously commemorates an important event as attested by the fact that the type was used on Aurei, Sestertii and Asses as well as denarii. The general thought is that the type commemorates the building of or repair to an aquaduct, or perhaps to a possible remission of the taxes levied on the city of Carthage for its water supply.
