Elagabalus: Antioch, Syria: SC with Delta Epsilon


1318c.jpg

SC with Δε. This is a continuation of the main type struck by Macrinus, in the same single denomination (as) and with roughly the same size (18-20 mm) and weight (c.4.5 gms). The standard obverse type is laureate head right. A laureate bust right or a radiate head right occur infrequently.

Elagabalus: Antioch, Syria: Tyche seated


1865_(2).jpg

These were struck in two denominations, one 32 mm (8 assaria) and 26 mm (4 assaria). Both have the reverse type of Tyche of Antioch seated with the river god Orontes swimming below. The larger coins have a ram leaping over Tyche while the smaller ones do not. The larger coins are very scarce.
