All of the examples that came up on ACSearch also referred to Carrhae, except this one:

https://www.acsearch.info/search.html?id=4636157

Triskeles Auctions Sale 22, Lot 357, Dec 15, 2017. Roman Provincial Coins
Mesopotamia, Edessa. Caracalla. A.D. 198-217. Æ (15 mm, 2.19 g, 6 h). IMP CAES M AVR AN[TONINVS P F AVΓ], laureate head of Caracalla right / COL AVR METROPOLI ANTONINIANA, Turreted, veiled and draped bust of Tyche right. Dandrow type 2, pl. 22, 3; SNG Hunterian 2490-1; SNG Righetti 2568. Dark brown patina with sandy deposits. The reverse legend remarkably clear. Very fine. This coin was formerly attributed to Carrhae based on a faulty interpretation of the reverse legend, but recent numismatic and papyrological evidence discovered at Dura-Europos and elsewhere in the middle Euphrates region points to a mint located at Edessa.

The Dandrow paper is :
Dandrow, E. 2016: ‘The Latin coins of Caracalla from Edessa in Osrhoene’, Numismatic Chronicle 176, 183–205.

If you do not subscribe to the NC, the offprint is available from Academia:
https://www.academia.edu/31013674/The_Numismatic_Chronicle_176_Offprint_The_Latin_Coins_of_Caracalla_from_Edessa_in_Osrhoene

BTW, Edward Dandrow's CV at the University of Central Florida also indicates that he has the following book in the works:
The Coinage of Carrhae. A study and catalogue of coins types, their historical context and iconography minted at Carrhae in the Roman province of Osrhoene.

A Google search reveals that another historian has used Dandrow's discussion of Edessa's status under Caracalla in "BARDAISAN OF EDESSA AND MEMORIES OF CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION IN THE NEAR EAST* by NATHANAEL ANDRADE, just as an example of how recent numismatic research may affect our historical narative.

Andrade's paper is available as a free download from the Wiley online library.

Interesting reading for a hot summer morning...
