Tarsos Cilicia Stater8 viewsCast fake of a SNG France 251, Stater of Tarsos, 378-377/374-373 BCE, depicting Pharnabazos as Ares on the obverse, Baal seated on the reverse.

Claudius II, Denarius, Mediolanum8 viewsObverse: IMP CLAVDIVS P F AVG, laureate and cuirassed bust left, holding spear over right shoulder;
Reverse: SPES PVBLICA, Spes walking left, holding flower in right hand and raising skirt with left hand;
RIC V - (c.f. RIC V 133 - unlisted bust type), RIC V Online - (c.f. RIC V Online 40 - aureus)

Modern fakes (likely cast or pressed) that surfaced on Ebay in the summer of 2020, being sold as authentic. Besides this type being known only as an aureus, not a denarius, the style on both sides is wrong.
