Dear,
This coin was published in the Sylloge Nummorum Graecorum of the Cabinet des Médailles in France. They classified this coin as Elagabal so we follow this identification.
Best regards,
Marie Brillant

As this coin is a middle bronze and there is no sestertius with this same reverse type with which it may be confused, I suspect the reported weight of the coin is erroneous.

Die match to a published forgery. See: IBSCC Bulletin on Counterfeits v19/2 Fig 10 Page 15/16.

"The false pieces share the characteristic fabric seen previously on forgeries of Osroes I's, including odd edge breaks and perfect preservation. More specifically, the topknot is much broader and flatter than real examples and, unusually, is composed of only a double row of dots; the ribbon ties are curved rather than having a distinct angle; the face and beard taken together form what looks like a shield, unlike real examples which are less regular; the workmanship is "too perfect"; the archer holds his bow with two "fingers" on the curved section only, on all genuine examples he appears to have one finger on the curve and the other either at the end of the bow where the string is attached or raised in the air, with its tip far from the bow end.
