MESOPOTAMIA, Edessa

Elagabalus, CE 218-222

AE27, 15 gm

Obv: AVT K M A ANTΩNEINOC; radiate cuirassed bust left, holding shield and raising right hand.

Rev: AVP ........ EΔECCA; Tyche seated left on rock, holding corn ears; to left a column surmounted by a statue of Marsyas, river god swimming right at feet

Ref: Mionnet supplement 8, 26. Very rare. Mionnet is the only work which lists this coin with a column on the left.

 

This coin was in a large mixed lot and had no attribution.  It has driven me a little crazy but I'm fairly certain of the attribution.  If you can confirm or refute this, please drop me a note.
