Bellinger 221 has the same rev. type for Commodus, but does not list it for Caracalla. Curious, since Cohen 801 has the type for Caracalla, citing the Paris collection. This coin is different than Lindgren's and Cohen's. Obv. legend different, ANTONIVS PIVS AV versus M AVREL ANTONINVS. Rev. legend different, GEN COL AVG TRO versus COL AVG TRO CN (GEN?) (per Curtis Clay)

Alexandreia (AD 222-235) AE 24 - Severus Alexander104 viewsSeverus Alexander, 222-235 AD. AE24 (7.14g, 12h). Laureate, draped, and cuirassed bust right / Hercules wrestling the giant Antaeus, whom he is lifting off the ground. Fine, rough brown and green patina. Rare type which Bellinger only recorded for Septimius Severus and a mature Caracalla.

A giant of Libya and the son of Poseidon and Gaia (the earth goddess), Antaeus would challenge travelers to wrestling matches, easily killing his opponents and collecting their bones to construct a temple to his father. It was en route to the Garden of Hesperides to complete his eleventh labor that Hercules met Antaeus. A wrestling match ensued, but Hercules was unable to finish his opponent as Antaeus regained his strength each time the hero threw him to the ground. Realizing Antaeus’ strength waned as the he left the earth (i.e., the protective realm of his mother), Hercules lifted the giant aloft while crushing him to death.
