ID Help - Tiny AE16 with eagle reverse


Recommended Posts

I don't have a scale, but this probably weighs about 1g, and 16mm.

The eagle reminds me of Claudius II's consecratio issues, but this is obviously a provincial coin. I think I see a lambda on the obverse, which also points to Claudius II, but I just can't figure it out.
