Can anyone find this possible Numismatik Lanz coin?

I recently won this coin as an unidentified Roman provincial coin. I was able to ID it before I won it and thought it was pretty cool and seemed rather uncommon, so put in a bid in order to win. I won it for only $8.50. It arrived today and when I took it from the envelope, it was in one of those cardboard things that say "coin inside" except it was also in German. When I opened that up, it was in a Numismatik Lanz bag with weight, diameter, and what I'm assuming was a lot number. I've been looking around but I can't find it in any previous auctions. I was wondering if anyone who is better at me than researching could find it in a previous auction. I'm just curious. I'd love to have a bit of background on it.

Anyways, here is the coin:

Jared, If you’re very patient you could use the Coryssa database. It is mostly from Ebay sales, but it will be only efficient if the attribution was right and not part of a lot. Have fun.

Thanks! This is a new database for me. Should have fun playing around with it 🙂
