Note Confirmation required. Lindgren and Kovacs gave the reading ΙΟΥΛΙΑ ... ΕΥΤ(?) ΑΥΓand tentatively suggested Julia Paula or Julia Aquilia Severa. The coin has been placed here because of its similarity with https://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/type/51606, of Alexander; it might perhaps represent Julia Mamaea? However, the portrait is more suggestive of Julia Domna.
