Good Fine. Toned brassy surfaces.
ΔHMAPX(IKHC) ЄΞ(OYCIAC) is Greek for tribunitia potestas, and UΠAT B dates this coin to Trajan's second consulship.
This has also been attributed to Caesarea in the province of Cappadocia, but more recent scholarship suggests it is an issue of the Koinon (Commonwealth) of Syria.
