If I remember rightly it is classed as a " bearded serpent with Radiate head "
There are a heck of a lot of coins from Marcianopolis for Macrinus but this is one of my favourite Reverse designs.
Who doesn't like a big old snake on a coin

Beautiful piece, Tenhobbit! If you'd ever think about parting with it, keep me in mind! I love collecting ancient romans with snakes.

They just arrived. While they are a bit darker than the pictures looked the details are even better! I am very happy with everything, thank you!
