Here we see a more familiar depiction of Artemis than that of the Ephesian manifestation (see lot 867). The reverse type depicts Artemis as the goddess of the hunt, about to slay a deer. Homer applies the epithet 'Ποτνια Θηρων' (Mistress of the Animals) to the goddess, and deer in particular were considered sacred to her. In addition to female fertility and virginity, Artemis was associated with certain male activities - in particular the transition from boyhood to manhood and warfare. Perhaps it is these latter associations Caracalla wished to conjure in Tarsos, the city from which he launched his Parthian campaign in AD 216.

Alexandria ad Issum was founded by Alexander in 333 BC, about 35 km south of the Issos battlefield, to guard the Syrian gates (a mountain pass connecting the cilician coast with inland Syria) while he was advancing to Egypt. The small city issued few coins, some under Antiochos IV and some in imperial times, all of which are rare today.

There has been much discussion about this fascinating obverse type. While Imhoof-Blumer read the legend as "Imperator Caesar Alexander, dedicator of the rebuilt temple of Asclepius," while Eduardo Levante suggested an alternative reading as "on behalf of the pontifex maximus of the Empire," meaning the greatest high priest of the world.
