My other half found this nice bronze/copper Roman coin the other day using his Deus machine.
He believes it is a Constantine Follis with Sol standing on reverse and minted in modern day Lyon and measuring 22 mm in diameter.
It was found a few centimeters down on recently reseeded land. The setting he used were fast/12 khz and 95 sensitivity, thank you in advance for confirmation or correction to ID if wrong.

Hi Miss demeanour
Would you be so kind as to check your PM's from April and send a reply back please
If you could take a couple more photos with the visual scale as required by the MDF Hammy Code we would be most appreciative, and we can unlock this one for you to edit them in for a proper ID
Thanks

Hi Dave thanks for message on my introduction, I'm not sure if you've looked the coin up yet, it's as Alectus said is a Constantine follis. Here's a bit more Constantine 313-314 PLG/Lyons, Ref. RIC VII 5 ,sears 16066. As far as i can tell, anyway.
