Augmented dominant seventh chord = what scale?

An easy example: `C+7 = C E G# Bb` What scale would this thing come from? When playing it it sounds lydian to me, not so much dominant. Same notes rewritten: `E+7#11 = E G# B# A#` my best guess would be lydian augmented mode from `III` melodic minor... but that mode doesn't have a `b7`...
