As a personal advice, don't ask if all your coins are rare - it's a good idea to search for other examples after you find out the ID and you can approximate how rare it is.
You are very correct and cleverly written. This coin is very rare. I have not found any other examples. This is a very lucky find yesterday I had. I am very pleased with her. This coin is beautiful, very rare and valuable.
And she is very Roman with all the accessories of a Roman province. and from a historical point of view, it is super interesting. There are also legionary standards and a Roman eagle with a wreath and Mount Argaeus.
Can you link to the source of your claims?

But there were too few sales of such a coin. here is one of them and the price may be underestimated. I bought this mrnet for only 5 euros.

thank you very much for a very good and helpful opinion and for your good appreciation of my coin
From my point of view - and I'm sure others share it - the appeal of an ancient coin is not caused solely by rarity. You can have a very rare coin but it will not be as popular as one might expect.
Or a coin that is common but everybody wants one in the collection.
A very good example - the Athens owl tetradrachms. Are they rare? Absolutely not. But are they desired? I think all the ancient coins collectors would want one.
I will also receive in a few minutes (and probably post it on CT) another COMMON ancient coin, in an average condition, but very desirable, I think, due to symbolism on it.
What is important is that you like your coins, they fit your collecting area and tastes. Everybody has different preferences. If I see a coin similar to yours in an auction, it will not be my top priority, but for a collector who specializes in Provincials / Severus Alexander coins / Cappadocia coins, it might be extremely appealing.
