Obverse: Laureate head of Apollo right, monogram on right.
Reverse: Roma seated left on pile of shields holding Nike and spear, M to inner right field.
RG 6 // SNG Copenhagen 466 var. // SNG von Aulock 532 var.

Attractive nearly black glossy patina, much nicer and not as rough as the photo suggests. This is an interesting coin as one wonders as to how to categorize it. It is Greek, Roman Republican and Provincial, all in some aspect!
