Found by my detecting friend on pasture same field as buckles etc.
First one will be identifiable, probably 3rd C due to the spiky crown, quite a distinctive other side.

Not much, I'd imagine :lol: I'm on the home-made mead (christ, it's pokey) and spiced rum. Which is possibly why I'm also seeing possibly another Gallienus. With all arms coming out of his nose and a gert big armoured elephant singing hymns behind him :Party:
