Roman coin?

Post by Diogo » Mon Nov 11, 2019 12:47 am

Hello
Need help to identify this coin:

Garrett AT pro, id 60-70, 5 cm deep.
Probably bronze, erosion, heavy and thick, had some patina before cleaning.
Backside is totally clean.
Found in area with Roman and medieval findings in south Europe.

Thanks for all your help

In the top photo it looks like Trajan or Hadrian. For me it's less clear in the bottom photo and could be almost anybody. :D

It's what I said it is the first time around! x;
Trajan Sestertius or As.

Hi ::g
I think without the weight that's impossible to distinguish an as and a dupondius.
