Hi all
Found this little Roman denarius, can’t find a match to the small bust but might be Magentius with 2 victories holding a wreath?

Could someone be kind to give their thoughts, cheers

Looks like Licinius to me with Two victories standing, facing each other, together holding shield on altar on the reverse. similar to this one :thumbsup:

In my opinion, having a guess is the first step to learning. making mistakes on the ID's happens to us all sometimes so always worth having a go in my book :thumbsup:

Spot on :thumbsup:

Mark you, I've been doing that for ages and my progress has been, shall we say, somewhat less than desired :lol:

Two denarii on here in one evening. Great coin :thumbsup:
