Sorry. Sorry, everybody. Now, if I might get back on track...

The second Roman coin has the hallmarks of Gloria Exercitvs on the reverse, but would appear to have a laurel or other tree/bush/scrub between the standards and I can't find a match for that.

So I'm almost certainly wrong.

And, equally certainly, nobody is probably in the slightest bit interested at this stage, what with this rabbit/arm/leg/foot fixation.

I was actually seriously looking at the second coin too - Gloria Exercitus seemed to be a good bet but as you say, there's something there that shouldn't be (maybe a rabbit?)....... running away now.....

It looks like the remains of a 19thC coach mount. They are often lead filled brass and are hammered into the wood with round spikes on the back. ::g

Another thing- to my eyes-
it looks like it’s been decorated with colour?
Or not.
By the way ...I’m still chuckling about the rabbit in a top hat...

Meant to say yes I think you’re right, it was. There are tiny traces of colour ::g

The first Roman is a Constantine too isn't it? I saw a similar bust on a youtube video last night. I think it was a Constantine the fourth?

Good excuse to get back out there... ;)
