Ganschow 512b

In the year this coin was issued, Severus fell ill in Britain during the campaign against the Caledonians; his days were numbered. Caracalla continued the campaign, but his thoughts were on the future.

Thanks to Curtis Clay for the following info:
Ganshow knew just two specimens of your drachm with crescent in r. field, the more similar being his 512a = Henseler 856, apparently from the same obv. die as yours, but with two added letters in the rev. legend: KAICAPI for KAICAP and NEΩK for NEΩ.

Also very similar to yours: Ganschow 511b = Henseler 855, again apparently same obv. die, rev. like yours but without crescent r. or l.
