Another Roman For ID If Possible Please.. And A Key

Post by Vosenos II » Thu Nov 08, 2018 8:30 pm

Out for a short trip to our stubble field again today. Amongst lots of small bits of lead, the odd button and a pocket watch winder I managed to find another little Roman coin and a key.
Both items were no more than 4 inches deep and found using Deus Fast.
The Roman is 15mm diameter and the key 50mm long. ::g

The pic's blurred but thems look like the pointy features of Claudius II Gothicus
Essential equipment:
Some sort of electrical gubbins(I'm told it's a Deus). In various colours

Its either Claudius II or his brother Quintillus, they both look very similar and both used the PROVIDENT AVG reverse that your coin is Graham :D ::g
