Emesa — A settlement in Syria
Emesa, an important city of Syria rose even further under Septimius Severus since his wife Julia Domna 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.

According to Prieur this coin is work of Emesa engraver and might be from Emesa before his moving to Antioch. During Elegabalus' reign engravers working on tetradrachms of Caracalla and Macrinus were all rallied in Antioch.
