Draped and bearded bust of Commodus r.; ΑΥΤΟ ΚΑ Μ ΑΥΡΗ ΚΟΜΜΟ?Ο / Distyle facade of the temple of Marnas; inside, Marnas on r. standing l., holding bow and branch, looking at Artemis standing r., holding bow and drawing arrow from quiver at her shoulder; on l., ΓΑΖΑ (Gaza); on r., date: EMC (245 = 184/5 AD). Rosenberger 125 var. Sofaer pl. 113,153 var. Dark green patina. Very Fine.

    The coins of Gaza are rich with this type, however this is the only instance we are able to document where Marnas and Artemis are sacrificing over an altar between them, and the Gaza mintmark is not used.
