On December 19, 1189 AD the Artuqid region witnessed an occulation of jupiter as it passed behind the sun. So some think the large Roman-style head left allegorises the Sun and the small Byzantine bust facing allegorises Jupiter.
Maybe these are simple allusions to still well known coin types of Claudius/Nero and Heraclius to ease the money exchange with the Byzantine empire.
