A correction for Elagabal

Elagabal, AD 218-222
AE 27, 11.07g, 26.83mm, 0°
struck under governor Novius Rufus
obv. AVT K M AVRH - [ANTWNEINOC]
         laureate head r
rev. VP NOBIOV ROVFOV NI - KOPOLITWN PROC ICT
        in l. and r. field RO - N
        Tyche Euposia as City Goddess, wearing mural crown, stg. l., holding cornucopiae in l.
        arm and rudder in  outstretched r. hand; on the cornucopiae a small child (Ploutos) std.
        l.!
ref. a) not in AMNG:
            rev. cf. AMNG I/1, 1972 (different die breaks, doesn't mention Ploutos nor mural
            crown!)
            obv. AMNG I/1, 1968
       b) Varbanov cf. 4090 (doesn't mention Ploutos!)
       c) Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2018) No. 8.26.38.19 (plate coin)
coll. Hoeft

Because Tyche Euposia here doesn't wear a kalathos as usually but a mural crown she should be called "Tyche Euposia as City Goddess"! This is very rare. I know only one other type, for Commodus from Markianopolis.

Jochen,

"I have played a bit with color and contrast. I hope you can agree."

No problem, I'm well aware of the hue produced by my light source and I haven't been able to solve that problem without editing the pictures themselves.

Cheers,

Dear clueless!

Thank you for your posts.
The coin of your post #185 shows a coin now in Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2020) as No. 8.14.38.12 (same dies)
The coin from your post #186 is already in Nikopolis Addenda #8 as #70 but with different weight. The rev. is NIKOPOLIT - WN PROC I.

I have corrected the numbers in your post.

Best regards
Jochen

Dear clueless!

Thank you for posting. I think it is actually HrHJ (2020) 8.18.6.3, where your coin is better preserved than the depicted coins. And the rev. seems to be from the same die as Severus 8.14.6.9
