Need help identifying this denarius size coin


Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of a barbarous imitation of a Libero Patri denarius, combining a poorly rendered obverse of Caracalla and this Severus reverse type.

Here's an official one of Septimius Severus in my collection.

Septimius Severus, AD 193-211.
Roman AR Denarius, 3.22 g, 16.5 mm, 11 h.
Rome Mint, AD 194.
Obv: L SEPT SEV PERT AVG IMP III, laureate head, right.
Rev: LIBERO PATRI, Liber standing facing, head left, cloak over left shoulder, holding oenochoe and thyrsus; at feet left, panther standing left, catching drips from the jug.
Refs: RIC 32; BMCRE 64-65; Cohen 301; RCV 6307; Hill 84.
