I saw this Matidia denarius on eBay. It sold for $380, offered by a seller with 4000+ feedback and a 100% rating, but who didn't have anything else listed by way of ancient coins.

I checked some of the fake Roman websites and found lots of examples of this type, but nothing that looked like a match to this coin.

The style looks good to me, but in this worn condition, I can't be sure if the coin is authentic.

Opinions?

Here's the link to the auction as well as two photos from it.

Nice, not an easy type to find.

I'm tempted to say it's genuine. I wouldn't think twice if it was offered by CNG or Roma. If so, someone got a deal.

Agreed. I buy/bid on ebay all the time, but only make the bigger purchases from trusted sellers.

I found this example on CoinArchives which sold for $340 plus buyer's fees.
