Hi, dug this up a few days ago and despite a couple of hours on research haven't been able to find anything out. I presume it's Roman, but just can't quite make out the writing (old eyes). I would be grateful if anyone can help. Thanks.

Nice coin, beautifully photographed ::g

Any chance of a picture of the reverse? It’ll get you a fuller ID.

People, thank you so much. I was barking up the wrong tree as usual Sorry, no point in photographing the obverse, it's completely fried.

Nothing to be sorry about mate,at least you were having ''ago'' and this side of the coin is at least recognizable.
