Emesa - A settlement in Syria
Emesa, an important city of Syria rose even further under Septimius Severus since his wife Julia Doman originated from this city. The bulk of the coinage consists in denarii struck for the above couple (193 - 211), plus the very rare issues of the usurper Uranius Antoninus (253 - 254). The extremely rare coinage of queen Zenobia (272) might have been struck at Emesa as well.
