Is this Magnia Urbica?

    Hi all!

    I recently spotted this one on eBay, and was wondering if I should purchase it.

    It is a lot of about 10 coins. 9 of them are poor condition LRBs, but the 10th coin appears to be a scarce antoninianus of Magnia Urbica. Does it look like Magnia Urbica or some other empress? I think I can see a B just above her forehead, which doesn't fit with any other empress. I'm also wondering if it's worth the £26 asking price, although I recon I could resell the other coins on eBay for about £15 in total. The possible "Magnia Urbica" I would keep for my collection

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    I mean it "could" be. I can't really tell. With basically no legend what-so-ever on either side, it could be any of those empresses. I wouldn't waste the money on it though without better pictures.

    Might just be Severina.

    My first thought as well.

    I'd use the 26 quid to get something identifiable.
