OBV: M OPELLIOC ANTWNINOC
Bare headed and draped bust of Diadumenian, right
Eros/Thanatos standing left, resting chin on palm, leaning on (extinguished) inverted brand
Here's an imperial silver I had from a group lot that I eventually sold off.
I still have a provincial. I've always liked the portrait on this one. In his volume that covers Roman Provincial coins, Wayne Sayles remarks that this particular issue shows "probably one of the more accurate portraits of the young prince".

R: BYB - ΛOV IEPAC, Astarte wearing a polos standing facing, carrying a spear, foot on prow, being crowned by Nike on short column to right; all within distyle temple with a fancy arched roof.
I got this one in a CNG group lot, and have had a hard time placing strong bids on his denarii. He and Maximus are the only combo breakers in my straight run of denarii from Nero through Gordian III.

Large S C within wreath, Δ above, ε below,* star at top. BMC Syria 408 (p. 201) [Wroth, W., A Catalog of the Greek Coins in the British Museum, Galatia, Cappadocia, and Syria (London, 1899)], SNG Copenhagen 235, McAlee 745c [Richard McAlee, The Coins of Roman Antioch (2007)], Butcher 463 [K. Butcher, Coinage in Roman Syria: Northern Syria, 64 BC - AD 253 (2004)]. 17 mm., 4.33 g.
If anyone thinks my identification of this coin is incorrect, please let me know.
* "Δ E is thought to mean Demosia Exousia (Tribunal Power) but Butcher argues that more likely Δ E is related to the 4 (Δ = 4) Eparchies (administrative regions) and the associated imperial cult, particularly felt in Antioch, seat of the high priest, supreme head of the imperial cult in Syria."
