Here is the Cnidia on a similarly rare coin of Diadumenian from Midaëum in Phrygia (illustration, photos courtesy of Lübke & Wiedemann KG).
Much commoner on the coins are images of the post-Praxitelean Aphrodite Pudica, where the goddess is represented shielding the “shameful” parts of her body with her hands. Many variant copies of this statuary motif have survived, the two most famous being the Capitoline Venus in Rome (illustration, left) and the Medici Venus in Florence (illustration, right):
As an example of the type on coins, here is a sinuously elegant Aphrodite from Apollonia in Illyricum, with Julia Domna on the obverse (illustration).
Aphrodite Pudica with an attendant Eros is found on coins of Nicopolis ad Istrum and Tomis in Moesia; Anchialus in Thracia; Sicyon in Achaea; Sinope in Paphlagonia; Hadriani ad Olympum in Mysia; Saïtta in Lydia; and Ptolemaïs-Akko in Phoenicia.
Nicopolis ad Istrum in Moesia, attractive coins of Julia Domna (illustration) issued by the governor Aurelius Gallus.

The coin is dated 305 of the Era of Sinope (= 235 A.D.). There is a similar reverse—though without Eros—on a coin of Plautilla from Pautalia in Thracia (Varbanov 5291, Ruzicka 768—both of whom describe the altar as a column surmounted by a globe).
