Another Roman coin for ID please?

Post by RossDG » Wed May 16, 2018 9:52 am

Morning all,
Spent a frustrtaing couple of hours out with the GM5+ on the villa field. Apparently this field has not been ploughed since 1979, so was a little surprised when this coin popped out at 7 inches in what seemed to be am area full of modernish ferrous bits (most of which were giving target id's in the 60-80 range, although with a very iron edge to the signal and scattered response on the VDI graph). The roman coins on this field give a reasonable signal, but still with an iron edge, but do at least indicate copper on the VDI.

Anyway, any idea on an ID would be very gratefully received.

Thanks

A darn sight more use than I have been so far!
That looks like a great ID - there are a couple of matches on the net - as Constantine the Great - Follis?

This might help :-/

Sadly there is not quite enough detail to tell the difference between Constans 1 or II or Crispus; definately something in front of the face which is vertical - but all 3 have a similar look. Also the coin is quite badly struck, so part of the revers is off the top of the coin, but definately Alter/Globe - possibly 3 stars...at least the date range is constant for Constantine!
Many thanks for the hyperlink - very useful.
