Note The reverse legend presumably includes a personal name, but is not yet legible. As no coins are yet known for Elagabalus, it is possible that the coin was struck in the reign of Severus Alexander. On the other hand, the countermark is otherwise known only on coins from the reign of Elagabalus.
