Tetrastyle temple with cult-statue of Apollo naked, standing right, holding an arrow and a bow; snake entwined around tree-trunk to right.
(Moushmov 499)
Note that the pose of Apollo in the temple on this coin is identical to the pose of Apollo on the top coin, sans temple! Does this mean that the Apollo on the top coin specifically shows the cult-statue of the temple, and taking it one step further, presumes it was located in Markianopolis itself?
