    Ah, @Valens, I see you have the same interest as I do! Here are a few of these imitative denarii that were found in the Kursk area and at the Lower Volga.

    The first one suggests Marcus Aurelius or Antoninus Pius, it's from the Kursk find, apparently. 18 mm, 2.80 gr. Cf. Sergeev 203.

    The second one was found at the Lower Volga, the text says 'MOD', so Commodus? 18 mm, 1.80 gr.

    Thanks very much for this link to the book of Anokhin about imitations of Roman denarii (2015), I didn't know it.

    I suspect this imitation of Antoninus Pius comes from the same region, i.e. Ukraine/Moldova, though I haven't found a die link with a published coin. Given the time and location (these were produced at least until 300), is it a good bet to attribute them to the Sarmatians, in particular the confederation known as the Roxolani?

    The Anokhin book that @Valens linked above is great. Here are some of the imitations in it that caught my eye:

    I don't know how I missed this thread. The middle right coin is a normal Septimius Severus from the early Emesa period so often shown here by Martin. It does not belong here but sure would belong in in either Martin's or my collection!

    Over the last few years I have shown several unofficial Septimius Severus coins here but have no idea from where they came. A few were shown on my 1998 page:
