Is this trajan denarius authentic?

There are some flow lines on the reverse at 2 o'clock, This suggests that the flan was indeed struck from a die as the silver tends to create rays that flow from the center to the edges of a coin, usually visible in the lettering. Look also at the edges of the coin where they might have been a seam if indeed the coin had been cast. So no, it's authentic.
