From a LRB lot. It can't be... can it?

It looks dubious...especially the way some of the obverse letters look crushed. There are lots of beat-up fake Zenobia coins floating around. 

I 'resemble' that remark.  I'm not beat up.  I'm just as good as I was the day I stopped being a Flavian as and was tooled into a Fake Alexandrian tetradrachm. My legends are clear and my face is strong  (if a bit like Titus?).😁  BTW, I came with a NGC label from a failed attempt by a previous owner to have me slabbed.  Those guys must get a chuckle out of some of the things people send in.

I saw that coin when it original came up for sale, and didn't bid as I thought the style and lettering were a bit suspicious. There was also a similar follis of Alexander of Carthage with the same issues in the same auction
