It's real alright.

 

I found the following : http://nms.scran.ac.uk/database/record.php...0-100-065-575-C which confirms your attribution. However, i also found a site which puts it as 104 bc. There seems to be a number of variants of the coin too, some (like mine) bearing a letter under the prow, another shows three pellets to the right above the prow.

 

I bought this coin for the handsome price of 25.5 euro. It appears that I did quite well, all considered :ninja:

It would have been a steal at half the price. Nice buy!
