The CBd
Bonner, SMA on CBd-1095
Ruthven 27
Obv. Sun-god, with seven rays round head, r. hand raised, riding to r. on lion, which rests a forepaw on an indistinct object probably meant for the skull of an ox. Facing him, a female worshiper with r. hand raised. Above, Iao, in exergue, abrasax. Very crude work, many details uncertain.
Rev. Cock-headed anguipede in kilted tunic, head to r., r. arm fully extended brandishing whip (?). On l. arm small round shield with central boss (?) and name Iao. Palm frond in field over shield.
Pyrites. Transverse oval, 23 Χ 19 Χ 5. Much corroded. The significant combination of sun-god and anguipede gives it some importance.
