ASIA MINOR, Uncertain mint. Caracalla. 198-217 AD. Æ 22mm Brockage (5.28 gm). Laureate head right / Incuse of obverse. VF, brown patina.

Lacking a die match to a known coin, the attribution of this interesting brockage must remain uncertain. The style of the engraving suggests an attribution to a mint in northern Asia Minor, perhaps Bithynia, but this is a very tenous assertion at best.
