Time to time I make spontaneous coin purchases outside of my collecting theme and put them on the side . So recently I’ve been going trough a bunch of coins and I rediscovered this in my drawer. I have no clue where and when I bought this coin . No tags.  Broken and repaired . After the long search I think I found a match , but I’m not sure . I don’t have any books on Roman Provincial and the only other example that I was able to find online is on Bibliotheque Nationale de France de Paris website and the same coin on wildwinds .

Caracalla . Acrasus, Lydia. 198-217. Magistrate Philodemus Moschianus
AYTO KAI M AYR ANTWNINOC, laureate, draped, cuirassed  bust right.
EPI CTR FILODHMOY MOSCIA B AKRACIWTWN, Artemis, with bow and
quiver, in biga of stags galloping left.
BMC 26; SNG von Aulock 2887; Mionnet IV, 16.
14.9 gr.
Additional information and comments are welcome  Smiley

No, GRPC plate coin is the same BnF coin in wildwinds.
But there is another coin in Sestini Mus. Fontana 8 (corr.
misread MOCXIA).

... But there is another coin in Sestini Mus. Fontana 8 (corr. misread MOCXIA). ...
You find the description here: https://digi.ub.uni-heidelberg.de/diglit/sestini1822bd1/0111  (last coin description on the bottom of the page)
but there is no picture.

Sestini refers to Mionnet and to a book by Joseph Pellerin, where the coin is described on page 142, first coin, but again without picture:
https://www.digitale-sammlungen.de/de/view/bsb10684986?page=158

As far as I understand it, this is the same coin described by Mionnet (page 3 and 4 number 16): https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k399108k/f10.item
and now in the BnF: https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b8516660s
