A few ancients for the chat room
This appears to be an AE Follis of Licinius I (308-328), similiar to
the ones shown here
http://www.wildwinds.com/coins/ric/licinius_I/t.html from Heraclea.
Pictures to the left are from yesterday and brightened a bit havent figured out how to take great digital photos of coins yet. Picture to the right is when I got it from Lee oldmancoins. Silver graces coming through.
Inscripton on the obverse reads IMPCVALLICINLICINIUS**AUG; reverse reads: **IOVICONSERVAT*****G with the mint mark just showing.
The coin above came from Bob Leonard boomaloha via the UK. I believe it is a coin similar to this one:
Gallienus AE Ant "Cute Doe" Gallienus AD 253-268 AE Antoninianus
"Magic talisman calling on protection of Diana" Obv: IMP GALLIENVS AVG -
Radiate head right Rev: DIANAE CONS AVG - Doe stag walking left, head
turned right (Bambi like) Exe: (epsilon) Rome mint AD 267-268 = RIC Vi,
176K, page 146 - Cohen 155 Comment: One of Gallienus' last issues.
Mine reads, however, on the Obv: GALLI** and on the Rev: CONSAUG with an X as the mint mark.
This one, also from Bob is completely unknown and not yet totally clean except for the obverse. It is of a man facing looking at a woman who is facing the holder of the coin. The Obv: has a portrait on it, but that is only starting to come through the dirt the person has a bit of a pug nose and is wearing the spiked crown. The last three letters of the rev inscription appear to be MIL.
