As RIC III lists Antonine coins, you must mean RIC II part 3 #1365.
(Maybe these will be renumbered in future to match with RPC?)

I figured that I’d post this little gem from Forum in the purchase o’ the day thread.

Picked up this wonderful coin from Joe in late March. This has nothing to do with my collecting focus but that doesn’t matter. My attraction to this coin can be summed up in two words: badass crab! I’m glad that I am able to continue to support Joe and Forum.
