Evening All,
God it is still brass monkeys out there I was really starting to regret a wee session this morning as I found nothing but cartridge caps for 2 hours and was bitterly cold until this popped out - it sounded so dull I hardly was bothered to dig it... a large crumb from the detecting gods when I needed it most... I have not found anything roman on this field in a few outings save for a broken fibula about 100 yards away.
Not a bad siliqua even though I say so meself... but which Valentinian be it? I am presuming it is Valentinian? They all look so similiar I can't tell them apart.
Any knowledge gratefully accepted and thank you in advance!
All the B
Alexander

That bloke above me gives me the hump. Just spent ages coming to that conclusion (they do all look the flaming same) and he's nipped in ahead of me. As per. :lol:

I'm going to say it anyway... Valentinian I Urbs Roma reverse. Rome mint. This one-ish

:thumbsup: ;)

Thanks very much anyway - I’m giving you some sort of moral victory ( I’ll work out the reasoning later!)
