I had a quick go after work this evening and found two sestertii and a couple of smaller bronze coins. I also found a lovely french jetton - well, slightly less than half of it, destroyed by machinery :cry:

One sestertius was in the usual knackered condition, but this one is pretty good :thumbsup: Any ideas on ruler would be much appreciated.

Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

That's the key, I think. The two big coins came from an area that I've covered numerous times, but the difference today is the depth that those coins came from. Much deeper than before and I'd be amazed if hadn't swept a coil over them in drier conditions and missed them.
