Would like to share a couple Imperator-period coins I just picked up at auction. One is Ahenobarbus and the other Marc & Lucius Antony (the latter being the one I needed). Neither is in primo condition, but for that period, I'll take what I can get.

I've also posted both to my gallery at lawrence c. It is strictly an "amateur" collection, but there might be a couple coins of interest.

Best,
Larry

No, of course not, but still, it is most likely something on your end. Please try a different browser and let me know what happens.

Thanks, Altamura! Yea, it is a bummer about the condition, but I'm delighted to ID it.

Cheers,
Tim

I would also say that it is this type from Chersonesos, but heavily corroded  Sad.

Hi All,

Would appreciate some help identifying a hand cleaned bronze roman Dupondius

10.48 grams
Writing around rim so could be a Trajan or Hadrian?
SC on the reverse

Hi Curtis,
You are correct. I must admnit that I think rhe position of the lettering is largely irrelevant in this series but if you really felt the need to mention if then...
Best,
Martin

Thanks Alex.  I was wondering if I was going mad lol

There are certainly several aspects that our two coins share and a couple differences as you mentioned. 
Overall, the  style seems very similar.
As I was using Helvetica's type finder the final two options I come up with is Heraclea 144 and Cyzicus 107.
I think it was the end of the scepter positioning and the rarity rating on the Heraclea that pushed me to assume mine was the more common Cyzicus.  Obviously I cant be 100% definitive just using the type finder.

Thanks for reposting your coin and it also gives me the chance to peruse your gallery Smiley
