    This seems normal for a Caracalla period PIA FELIX Diana. The type also came from the lifetime of Septimius in silver and bronze.

    My favorite is the Eastern mint denarius from the Syrian mint traditionally known as Laodicea.

    Genuine, but harshly overcleaned. The whole thing was likely black, and they tried to scrub it all off

    Here's a sketchy looking Doma that is actually a limes, muled with a Caracalla reverse.

    Well, it looks good to me, an inexpert opinion for sure.

    And having it weight less might be a good thing - a couple years back I got burnt on a fake Julia Domna denarius - the weight was something like 3.6 grams, which first got my fake-dar pinging. Then I found a die match on the Forgery Network. Live and learn.

    I never understood why Lucifer got such a bad rap...after all, it only means "light-bringer". Hence the torches on these coins.
