Top 2 coins 14m Diameter, top left has suckling Romulus and Remus.
Bottom 2 coins 18mm Diameter, bottom left helmeted Emperor, VRBS on the left, ROMA on the right

Well done, Dave! Them coins are in far better condition than I ever manage :thumbsup:

Two on the left are 4thC commemoratives with Romulus & Remus suckling from the wolf reverses (I've still never found one of them).

Bottom right is Constantine II with GLORIA EXERCITVS reverse
(EDIT: it's from the Heraclea mint)

Any chance of closeups of the top right coin? I can't make it out with these old minces :D

Thank the detecting gods they are only in one part of the field :shock: You can always ignore that bit as it sounds like you’ve a lot left to go at :thumbsup:

Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
