    The reverse of this coin under Julia Domna shows an eagle with a vexillum behind. The latter reads possibly within: LEG III. Reverse also reads around : SEP TURUS COL. I'm sure it was struck at Tyre. The coin weighs 10.08 g. Thanks for your comments.

    Interesting, Charles. Sorry, I am of no help. But, a cool coin.... that Eagle is great!

    Thanks.. V.Coins have already posted a similar coin ( currently In Stock), but it weighs 14.08 g. It's 4 grams heavier than mine. Would that keep my coin "Unpublished" ?
