    Sorry to be so judgemental--it's not the coin's fault if it's bronze--but aren't bronzes of Elagabalus from Antioch, Syria, supposed to have a large SC within a wreath on the reverse? This messed up little fellow appears to have the eagle reverse of a tetradrachm. It came from the same lot as the Miletos obol fourrée that I posted a few minutes ago. Pretty good detail for a fourrée core, if that's what this is. Any other ideas?
