Evening All,

One of my favourite fields (Herts), which has been fairly well gone over over the years, became surprisingly available today as the rape was so poor they only cut half of it then disced it almost immediately... so I dived in and this popped out! Almost the only signal in a couple of hours but goes to show theres still "silver" in them "fields"!

Anyway, it took me a bit of time but i think it is Antoninus Pius denarius, Annona reverse.... unless anyone thinks differently...!

All the B and any knowledge much appreciated!
Alexander

Yep :thumbsup:

Can't make my mind up if the obverse legend ends in XVII (minted Rome 153-154) or XVIII (minted Rome 154-155)

Either way - lovely find, that man :thumbsup:

Edit: I think the third "I" is actually part of his neck so 153-154 (RIC 230)

I'd have guessed RC231 myself. :Thinking:
