What is this? A monster coin? This is the heaviest antoninian I have seen so far. Love the full planchet.

7 Gram wow, that is one big Gordian Ant, great flan and portrait, the largest I have is slightly under 6 grams... wow, must be the biggest ant of Gordian I have ever seen, WONDEROUS addition mate, 5/5 definitely. I have a SECURITAS PERPETUA, but not nearly as nice or well centered or big... kinda reminds me of my 'ROMAE AETERNAE' ant of Gordian III, since it has that near perfectly centered obv... VERY IMPRESSED Potator II!
