The CBd
Schwartz - Schwartz on CBd-1773
26. Schwartz
a: Harpocrates seated l. on lotus, r. hand to lips and l. holding flail. Lotus has two buds and arises from solar bark. Above, three scarabs; to l. and r., symmetrically, three birds, three goats, one scorpion (that on the r. is chipped off).
Beneath boat, two snakes and crocodile.
b: AEH / IOVW; beneath, , possibly a monogram. The cutting of the reverse, particularly of the monogram, is much more amateurish than that of the obverse, and was probably done later.
