Interesting Pius Aureus found in Israel

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/138649

Although no reverse photo is provided, the article does mention the reverse shows Pietas and is dated to Pius' designation to his 2nd consulship. Based on this and the photo of the obverse, it sound like an example of Calico 1597a with which it appears to share the same obverse die.

the obverse legend reads IMP T AEL CAES ANTONINVS. Here's the photo of the obverse incase the article is taken down.
