    Almost have the McAlee series filled in my collection. Still missing 792A which has the tiny epsilon below the ram and 793 with a smaller ram l and smaller S-C on each side of the ram. I do have a couple that is not mentioned in McAlee. There have been quite a few of these showing up in the market over the last 4 years and we are starting to see some new variants too. You will notice 4 are radiant busts.

    One coin I missed had the ram leaping left hd r. This coin was unique in that the ground line was quite obvious the ground line. It was a simple horizontal line. Makes me wonder about the other theories about the ram jumping over a sacrificial leg (leg and thigh).

    I thought I would share and maybe had hopes that someone might be able to help fill that 792A and 793! ;-) Elagabalus Ram Running Series.jpg
