It is indeed a Roman coin Matt, Constantine I, MARTI CONSERVATORI and as far as I can remember, the only Roman I've found that was minted in Ticinum .
Your go :thumbsup:

Got to say that was a bit obscure unless you found that coin or era even of coin.
Finds for detectorist are a blessing when you get em. I think that was a tough one. :thumbsup: :Thinking:
Anyway.. let's see what Matts got! :D

Depends on your permissions and how many Romans you find I guess.
Wouldn't say it was easy unless you find them by the bag load as you must?
Anyway.. carry on Matt. :thumbsup:

Live long and prosper.
