Modern cast AE fantasy fake "sestertius" purporting to be of Lucius Verus, 35mm
obv:  L VERVS AVG ARM PARTH MAX TR P VIIII  draped laureate (?) bust, r.
rev:  fast quadriga being driven left, COS II SC in exergue
A commonly encountered "tourist fake" fantasy type. 
Note that the legend on this specimen, owing to flaws in the casting, appears to read ...MAX IP P VIIII, though other specimens show the legend more clearly.

Obverse copies Cavino (Klawans 1), and reverse Cavino for Didius Julianus (Klawans 2) 

WilliamBoyd2: I have seen this coin as a film prop in at least two motion pictures.
