Hi guys,

This is a metal detecting find from Devizes but I actually won it on a facebook competition!

Just looking for an ID. I think it's an Ae Antoninianus Aurelian but can't be sure, so any additional info would be great.

Thank you!

Claudius II

Claudius II AE Antoninianus. IMP C CLAVDIVS AVG, radiate, cuirassed bust right / SPES PVBLICA, Spes standing left, holding flower and raising robe.

RIC 102, Cohen 281; cf Sear 11374. (or similar)
