A new "barbaric" imitation for Elagabal

Elagabal, AD 218-222
AE 18, 2.79g, 17.89mm
obv. [AV K ]M AVR - ANTWNINO[C] (R retrograd)
       Bust, draped and cuirassed, laureate, r.
rev. NIKOPO[L]ITWN PROC IC
       Crescent with 3 stars in the cavity
ref. a) not in AMNG

The style of the obv. resembles that of No. 8(?).26(?).14.1 (even the retrograde R!) and so I have completed the obv. legend.
