Hi all, went on a weekender with my regular club and found some little romans which I'm having trouble identifying them, any help appreciated


Not sure if the larger one is silver, when foil and saliva tested, there was a eggy smell but not as strong as expected. Thanks for looking

Well found N8 looks like you were on some good ground. Always nice to have a few nice bits when you go on strange land.
Canít help with ID my knowledge of Roman coins is zero. All I can admit to is, I know what one looks like  Grin

The one next to the 50p is a Carausius, Pax Avg reverse.

The other three are a coin of Constans (top left), What looks like a bronze of Flavius Victor (is a camp gate reverse - top right) and a 'Constantinopolis' coin at the bottom (with Victory on the prow of a ship reverse).
