Note Original comment: "Confirmation required. Dattari seemed satisfied about the obv. inscription which he gave as ΙΟΥ[Λ ΜΑΙϹΑ] ϹΕΒ ΜΗΤ ϹΤΡΑ. Emmett suggests that the design might actually be Emperor or Ares?" The coin can now be seen to be of Julia Domna, year 22 (?): see https://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/type/84126
