When my detecting friend hands me a Roman "grot " and i see a distinctive figure with Wolf and Twins on reverse, think i have nailed it, not quite.
Thirty two variations found so far :o but the coin looks too far gone to get any more specific no legend, Stars etc.
Not to worry at least i THINK ? I have the Emperor correct.
Cheers, :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Hard to tell, Dave. This was issued by Constantine and his boys and, as you say, the diagnostic detail required to narrow it down (for me at least) is absent

Yep tricky to pin down, I have a few, some with detail are ID'd but when there's not much detail its a broad guess, I normal get as much detail as I can and let the FLO edit the record. The trickier bit is getting an image showing the detail :pulling hair out:

Nice find though and bodes well for future forays in that field :thumbsup:
