Roman for ID, Denarius?

Post by JunkFinder »

Out today and didn't find much but I did manage this nice roman. The condition is better than it looks in the photos. I'm really happy with it! Probably my best one yet. 😊 I can't decide if this is silver or bronze? It doesn't have that green patina that most bronze objects have,its more greyish with a hint of green.

Blimey, that was quick! I had barely finished posting. 😮 Thanks for the ID, you always come up with the answers.

So definitely a Denarius?
