Hi,

Can anyone help me i.d. The below Roman coin I found on the weekend?
It's a bit worn but there is a C visible on one side if that helps, placed it next to a 1963 one penny for size comparison
Thanks for looking

Nice find.

Looks like a female hairstyle.

Possibly a Dupondius of Faustina?

Agree with The Doc - although at first - as I looked at the first, reverse image - it took me a while to orientate it.

Given the size, it could be an As or a dupondias - the metal for these is the only really distinguishing feature - and I've even had some very tight flanned sestertii.

Could also be Lucilla (daughter of Faustina) and less likely Crispina (Faustina's daughter in law) - by Faustina - that's Faustina Junior (wife of Marcus Aurelius), not Faustina senior (her mother)
