We discussed a coin at our meeting of the Oxford Numismatic Society last week and it has us stumped. Any ideas?
I think there may be a tiny countermark under the ear. I have found similar portraits of Elagabalus 218-232.
The lettering of LEG is unusual. It looks early. I assume the letters are III. The design on the standard looks like a chi- rho but not sure. That
would not tie in with the period.
Any Roman Provincial coin experts in the audience? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks. -Editor
