Out on a new permission yesterday, pasture, as all of my permissions are, came up with a few bits and think it may show some potential.
Just had a quick spin through several fields, just to orientate myself and get a feel for the place.

Along with the pretty slick William 111 and what I think is a Northumberland Fusiliers military badge, two Romans came up which I could do with some help in identifying.

Is the silver Denarius a Hadrian?
The other coin which is pretty battered I haven't got a clue about I'm hopeless with Romans.
Any help with ID would be very much appreciated,
Thanks,
Reiver.

Trajan denarius divus reverse and Gallienus ,Antoninianus. Nice bit of pasture bashing.

Nice work :thumbsup:

The Gallienus is part of his "zoo series" issue and always a pleasure to find. See if you can collect the set! :lol:

When it comes to later bronze denominations we don't really know what the small coins were called. You'll often see "follis" used for them and the PAS prefer "nummus" for the same type of coin. You'll often see "minim" used but this is a modern name for these small coins. Same goes for "antoninianus", come to that, but we do know that radiate silver coins were worth double (so a radiate denarius was worth two denarii).
