Illegible legend ; laureate bust right.
CEΛEYKEωN [ΠEIEP]IAC / ZEYC KACIOC , sacred conical baetyl of Zeus Kasios under canopy supported by four columns, seen in perspective.

Seleucia Pieria was the port of Antioch. Her main sanctuary was Zeus Kasios (the god who is on Mount Kasios, near the city), worshiped as a conical sacred stone - exactly like Elagabal in Emesa.
