Unpublished and Interstesting Caracalla AE

Caracalla, from Tarsus in Cilicia. The first example is from my collection, 29mm. The second from John Jencek, 33mm. The reverse is unpublished, though the obverse die is linked to SNGLevant1056. Both coins are from the same dies, mine just heavily worn. Its a fascinating coin, and I have never seen Artemis depicted in the act of killing the deer. Quite a dramatic coin!
