Septimius Severus, 9 April 193 - 4 February 211 A.D., Stobi, Macedonia
None of the references describe this bust. Josifovski identifies all dies for Severus with the Victory left reverse as laureate, draped, and cuirassed but this coin (and his coin 126 from the same dies) is not draped or cuirassed. We believe there is the slight trace of an aegis on the far shoulder. Varbanov references Josifovski.

(same dies); Varbanov III 3860 (R3) corr.; BMC Macedonia p. 104, 5 var.; SNG Cop 331 var.; Lindgren II 1142 var., F, green patina, well centered on a tight flan, better than the Josifovski plate coin, light corrosion, Stobi mint, weight 9.889g, maximum diameter 26.3mm, die axis 0o, 9 Apr 193 - 4 Feb 211 A.D.; obverse SEVERVS PIVS AVGV (from upper right), laureate bust right, aegis on far shoulder(?); reverse MVNICIPI STOBE (from upper right), Nike advancing left, wreath in extended right hand, palm frond in left hand; rare; $40.00
