||Countermarks: 2, Bust right and uncertain. The oval countermark (between M & D) is Howgego 100, described as bust right. It probably depicts Elagabalus or possibly Severus Alexander. Howgego lists 11 specimens of this countermark, 1 of which on a Macrinus/Diadumenian coin. The countermark in the rectangular punch (behind D) is probably Howgego 200, of which only 3 specimens are noted. It is described as Tyche, turreted right. Two of these three listed by Howgego are of Diadumenian. Howgego lists only one coin that combines H100 and H200.
