Looks like a barbarous radiate, circa AD 270-280.

Now how weird is that Huh when you posted it the other day I thought you may of been on to something thinking it was Celtic (though wrong Geographically) but now with a clean and ?oil? I see it completely differently Huh

I would think it's a 3rd century Roman Barbarous radiate.

ah thats great thank you for the ID. My first thought was radiate because of the spikes on one edge but its so tiny  and I couldn't make out a head on it so I thought Celtic maybe.


Here it is . Its the first coin on Wikipedia how about that!
Now that I can see which way up the coin goes, I can see the head on my coin.
