Evening all,
I found these two wee Romans very recently, (sorry I keep forgetting to add scale which I believe should be used in most coin cases.... ( but I am pleased it is not The Law...!)) The top one I believe must be one of the Tetricae but the bottom one I have no idea and the writing is such that I am wondering if his anonymity is intentional. Are they barbarous?
Any help with these much appreciated!
All the B
Alexander

Both PAX. Tetricus II & possibly the other one too.

PAX? I know I’m not a lover of these but am intrigued - do you mean they have peace on the reverse?

Apologies but I’ve not heard that term before :oops:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Sometimes the legend is nonsensical on these barbarous - another reason for loving them :thumbsup:
