Commentary

The two complex monograms cannot be resolved. The obverse may read something strange such as the name Σεβέρου or Κύριος βοήθει (with the nominative instead of the vocative), but both are quite unlikely. The reverse monogram may contain the word βασιλικοῦ in conjunction with a title, but it is unclear.
