Note The portrait is unlike others of Caracalla, and more like  https://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/type/87041 . As coins for Elagabalus (as opposed to Julia Maesa and perhaps Alexander Caesar) are not otherwise attested, they have both been assigned to Elagabalus, although the absence of a value mark is surprising.
