Fitzgerald: "Caracalla(?), 198-217 AD (mint?) d. 21 mm. A very much worn coin. Faint traces of the imperial bust can still be made out and the features somewhat suggest those of Caracalla. The revere types and inscriptions are completely obliterated. The fabric suggests Palestine.".
Newell: Greek and Greco-Roman
“Uncertain Mint, Caracalla (?)
