||Colonia Flavia Pacensis Deultum
||Collection; Moushmov 3570; SNG Bulgaria 166-169; Jurukova, Deultum, no. 77, pl. 7; Varbanov (Eng) 2175
||Varbanov and Jurukova incorrectly identify the object the emperor is holding as a parazonium; while Moushmov incorrectly identifies it as a scroll. This is likely to be Diadumenian on the reverse rather than Macrinus, as the scene is similar to a reverse type used when Geta was elevated to the purple. There are no documented coins from this mint describing Diadumenian as an Augustus so this coin could be as close as we will ever see.
