Thanks for that...waiting for some of these stunning finds to come up in "North Wales" but I think the Romans had run out of pocket change by the time they reached here! lol

That`s a great coin and 28 years older than the Republican i found 3 years ago.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

One of the earliest denarius I’ve seen, still with some good detail too

Beats my Denarius at 87 BC

Well found and saved :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

That’s a lovely coin :Star: It’s nice to see such a rare one being posted too. It’s amazing what a wide range of types of Roman coins are out there!
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
