RIC IV, Part II, 187 for official Antioch issue (S)
Ex Harlan Berk, CICF Show, April 2013

Notes by Curtis Clay from Berk tag: "The 'barbarous' style and poor engraving of some of the letters (notably, A is consistently rendered as Λ) reveals these denarii of Elagabalus and others of Julia Soaemias found with it to be ancient imitations, not products of the eastern mint that struck the prototypes. Also indicative of an unofficial issue is the wide variation of weight, ranging from 2.91 to 3.66 in the sample we obtained. It is not possible to say with certainty which tribe or group might have struck these imitations."
