Another Roman - enough detail to ID?

Post by Zyrbalax »

Hi all,

Found this today - my third Roman :D

This was in what the archaeologists are describing as a medieval ditch, about 18-20” below ground level but in their excavation so only a couple of inches below the surface (the archaeologists were happy for me to scan the bottom of their excavation, and GPS recorded the find spot).
There is a little detail on both sides; I am hoping expert eyes will see something that allows an approximate ID. I’ll be seeing the archies again tomorrow, it would be great to be able to tell them what it is!

Many thanks
