As per the title, a good weekend on the Roman for me. shame they are not all in the best of condition but that's just the way it is. still pleased though. I have a Denarius of Titus, the first one of his I've ever found, with Ceremonial quadriga with corn ears atop it, going left, on reverse. shame it's so worn. Some tiny minims I've put next to the denarius to show the size of these little coins. My mate had about the same :thumbsup:

You certainly live up to your Username , Kev.
Good amount of Romans.
Shame about the reverse of the Denarius.
When looking at Titus, always looks like his father, Vespasian.
Lucky enough for a Vespasian corn ear reverse to have been my first Roman coin, lucky for me Vespasian was clearly readable.
Well done, :thumbsup:
Dave.

:shock: You what? Blimey, I'd kill for that sort of definition :lol:

A good weekend indeed, Keith, no doubt made special by the denarius :thumbsup:

Nice going Keith :thumbsup: Been ages since I had a denarius to be honest. Had a broken sandle brooch yesterday, enamel and all, just the toe end though which was a shame :(

Keep up the posting mate, I must get a few pics up myself :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I'd sell my wife for a site like that :thumbsup:
Saying that, I'd give her away for a green waste field as well :D :D
