The Severeia were games in honour of Severus and his sons, frequently testified by incscriptions and coins in the entire eastern half of the empire, especially in Athens and Asia minor, but in Mauretania too, often together with other deities (Pauly)

Pedigree:

Tripod and Dolphin are attributes of Apollo, probably Apollo Delphinios. And probably a temple for the Dioscuri, guardians of the sailors, has stood in Olbia too, as many finds of votive offerings are pointing out.

The rev. alludes to the 1st founder myth of Alexandreia. It is not only a grazing horse, but it has found an object (plant? well?)

The coin alludes to the 1st founder myth of Alexandreia. The thunderbolt could be a hint that Zeus has played a role.

The obv. is found on SNG von Aulock 3742 too (from www.aeqvitas.com).
Rare, F
added to www.wildwinds.com

The chest is the symbol of Kibyra. Because KIBWTON (greek for wooden case, chest) was used in the NT for Noah's Ark it was suggested that Kibyra was the place where Noah has landed after the Flood. Therefore it became a place of pilgrimage.

The griffon originally was an oriental mythical creature, but invaded the Greek mythology and became the companion of several Greek deities, f.e. Dionysos or Artemis. In Roman times the griffon joined Nemesis too, here as vengeful nuisance.
