Hi,

I have just read this thread and realise I too have one of the "unpublished" AE15 of Geta with Dionysos riding the panther right. It looks to be an obverse and reverse die duplicate of the M&M specimen posted by Tom Mullally and the second specimen posted by Jochen, both on page 9. There do seem to be a number of these out there.

Regards,

Mauseus

These are interesting entanglements of the deity-issues with the commoner standards-issues from Nicaea, for which see esp. the link posted at the very beginning of this thread, https://www.forumancientcoins.com/board/index.php?topic=44576.0
