Ancient Roman Coin?
hey there, could you please help me identify this coin, its width is 26-27mm and its 2-3 mm thick. its heavy for its size .
Hmmm i think its Greek not roman, maybe Septimius Severus?Reply
Can you make out any of the inscriptions. They look like Latin letters.Reply
what do you think?Reply
Yes. It is a good match and you are probably correct. There are differences with the image below, which comes from Roma Numismatics with a 2015 auction price of 65 GBP, about $100 USD.
Description from auction reads:
