Little roman, probably not good enough for an ID but worth a try

Hi everyone, got out for my first club dig since the last lockdown, only three of us and it rained on and off but was nice to get out.

Took a little while to remember how to work the Deus since I've been out on beaches with the Nox but soon got into the swing of it.

Had a nice lead token and this little roman bronze, looked like a total grot when I dug it up but I've managed to get a bit of detail out of it, not exactly tip top condition though!

I have posted both sides of mine, and a picture of a much nicer example of what I think it is, would appreciate your opinions.

That is not dead which can eternal lie,

You have a House of Constantine with GLORIA EXERCITVS reverse, though which of the family it is I couldn't tell you.

Brilliant, thanks very much Figgis. :)
