Roman coin for ID.

Found on cultivated ground at 4 inches. About 16mm diameter. There's not too much detail left on the reverse but the bust isn't too bad. x;

Yep, Constans. The reverse seems to fit the "two soldiers holding spears and shields".

Really is a difficult one to be 100% certain on this one , legend ends NOBC so could be any one of Constantines sons except Crispus if its a 2 soldiers ( GLORIA EXERCITVS) reverse ::g
