Roman coin for id.

Post by Me and my boy » Sat Oct 12, 2019 9:36 pm

This is the coin from the earlier picture. I think it’s a denarius but where it’s damaged on the edge it looks like a bronze core.
Is it CARAUSIUS
And why have 1071 on the reverse in Roman numerals if it’s from 287-293

On Roman coins the letters under the figure on the reverse (the exergue) usually refer to the mint. ::g MLXXI on bronze coins dating between 287 to 296 identifies the mint as London. rl;

More new stuff on me.

Would have been nicer if it was silver but it’s in good nick for a bronze from my fields

Cheers Aoo,
It’s out of the water and in the cabinet now to save me intervening to much more.
It’s almost like it was pressed in clay both sides, I think that’s what’s preserved it so well.
Thanks for the link too
