Dear Dave, Shawn, and Board,

A very quick reply.  This coin was almost certainly issued for one of the Mesopotamian cities.  Based on the specific style and the fact that Caracalla appears to be at least cuirassed, Edessa seems like a good possibility.  Consider these examples in the British Museum for comparison:

Hope this helps a little!


Best regards,

Nailed it, thank you Mark! The lettering fairly closely matches with:

Good enough for me, I don't think this can be taken any closer to a sure match :)


regards
David
