My first post so here goes..

Constantius I as Caesar AE Follis. 305-06 AD.

Obverse: CONSTANTIVS NOB CAES, Laureate bust, right.
Reverse: SAC MON VRB AVGG ET CAESS NN, Moneta standing left, holding scales and cornucopiae

Its a more unusual Roman coin found in this country, but otherwise they are common. It has a solid patina so the soil is obviously good.

Decent shout, Stupot. I still can't make anything of that reverse and doff my cap to anyone who can :D

Welcome to the forum, by the way :thumbsup:

Appreciate your reply and welcome to the Hub.
The coin is Bronze, just run under the tap and can see the standing figure.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
