This one was a difficult one! After I concluded that the rev. legend could not be other than SALVS AVG, I had to investigate to find which antoniniani had Salus represented as Isis holding sistrum and basket. Only one emission : Claudius II Gothicus, Antioch, 3rd emission (RIC 1059 (temp.) ).
Next : ISIS ! (not the terrorist gang, the goddess).

I'm not super familiar with Sassanian history but I didn't think they ever ruled Carthage?
