A new rev. description for Severus

Septimius Severus, AD 193-211
AE 17, 3.35g
obv. AV K L C - CEVHROC
       Laureate head r.
rev. NIKOPOLIT PROC ICT.
       Altar with basket (cista mystica?) from which a snake is coiling up
ref. a) not in AMNG
      b) not in Varbanov
      c) Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2018) 8.14.47.31 corr.
emiliyan_pavlov, Ebay, September 2018

This type was described as "altar, on which snake is coiling, head l." This new coin has far the best preserved rev. I have seen. And now my suspicion that the old description is not correct is proven. It can't be a snake alone because there are structures above the altar not compatible with a snake. So I think it is a basket or a similar container in which the snake is coiling up.

Best regards
