A recent auction win was misattributed to Rome. http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-150565

It is actually from Antioch. I recognised it straight away by the style and most importantly the portrait - I already have two other rare denarii  from the issue with the same obverse die.

I think the difference between Rome and Antioch must have been a bit more subtle at this time than it would be later. It is not immediately obvious to me that this is an Antioch coin. Good catch.
