Just received this coin and fascinated to read in Price & Trell their version of what the coin represents, and some pics below from this marvellous book. This type of coin has parallels to the earliest Mesopotamia and Egypt of processional shrines. This class of portable shrines found on coins has a flat roof and unmistakably Eastern decorations underline the oriental origin of such a class of coins as coins depict it as far west as Megara in Greece. At Antioch Syria, only the carry bars at the base identify it as a portable shrine to be carried in processions through the streets of the city. Syria, Seleucis and Pieria. Antiochia ad Orontem.
