Moesia inferior, Nikopolis ad Istrum, 25. Diadumenian, HrHJ (2018) 8.25.38.10
Diadumenian, AD 217-218
AE 27, 11.42g, 27.03g, 0°
struck under governor Statius Longinus
obv. M OP[PELI DIADOV] - MENIANOC KAI
Bust, draped, bare-headed, r.
rev. VP CTA LONGINOV N - IKOPOL[ITWN PROC IC]
Tyche Euposia, wearing kalathos, stg. frontal, head turned r., holding cornucopiae in l. arm and rudder in 
outstretched r. hand; on the cornucopiae std. infant Ploutos l.!
ref. a) AMNG I/1, 1868 (1 ex., Munich)
       b) Varbanov (engl.) 3716 (cites AMNG 1868 but writes 'child seated at her feet')
       c) Hristova/Hoeft/Jekov (2018) No. 8.25.38.10
rare, F+, dark green patina

Svoronos, who has described this coin first, interprets the child correct for sure as Ploutos. We have to see the goddes possibly as the same personification which is named EVPOCIA on coins of Hierapolis in Phrygia. It should be noted that the title EVPOCIARXHC occurs in our region, in Odessos and Tomis, too.
There is another similar type, AMNG 1866 (2 ex. in Paris and Mandl). Pick writes: It is possible, that the small Ploutos on these two coins was overlooked!
