CERES AVGVSTA

This coin is part of a rare and little understood issue thought to be from a provincial mint in Thrace, which copy contemporary Roman AE issues. These Thracian issues show unusually good style, rivaling that of the official Roman mint. The Thracian Ceres dupondius of Claudius is notable for having a 12 o'clock die axis, and centration dimples which immediately show it cannot be a product of the official Roman mint. The style is typically good enough though that these issues are often mis-attributed as normal Roman issues, as was the case with my coin.

This thread from 2009 has served as the best reference for these Thracian AE coins of Claudius that I have been able to find:
