Roman Provincials - Mysia-Adramytium

Roman Provincial, Augustus, AE20, 27 BC-14 AD, Mysia-Adramytium
Laureate, draped, cuirassed bust left
(No legend)
Laureate head of Jupiter left

Ex David Cannon Collection

Note: Although there is apparently no ethnic on either side, the style of Jupiter matches Adramytium. The bust type of the emperor is more like that seen in the Severan era, but I could not find any examples from that period where the legend would have simply been ΣEBAΣTOY. In any event, I could not find a similar example with this combination of emperor and Jupiter, leading me to believe this may be unpublished.
