Does anyone have a clue about this little snakey provincial?

    I can't make out enough of the lettering to point me to the right town...

    Fabulous snake.. Serpent. I'll try to check about the Roman Emperor on obverse.

    I don't have any clue as to the bust either. Looks a bit like Augustus?, but the coin has the fabric of a later issue, maybe? I'm not often stumped, but this little bugger is testing my patience. It looks generally Thracian.

    Definitely a possibility. I'll crack open Varbanov later tonight and see if I find any die matches.

    Just wanted to say that the design and patina of that serpent is awesome!
