hopefully the pics are on, apologies for the lack of quality, I could not rotate one of them either ;;z

this might be a step to far even for Allectus but can anyone ID the coin, I think its Roman, measures 16 mm diameter, found 6 inches down on a stubble field in North Devon, Garret Ace 250 set on Custom, my son in law found a nice hammered in the same field. Unusual and a first Roman for me {if it is one} Not to many Romans ventured this far North of the county.

really excited if it is Roman {although he looks like Shaggy from Scooby Doo to me =)) }

Many thanks

Brilliant, Thanks Allectus I did wonder if it was Constantine the first but he ruled after the Romans left Britain didnt he? Could have been a trader I guess, quite close to what was a busy port for the time.
