I found this along the Danube, and at first thought was a common Constantine VOT/PR.  But as soon as i started to uncover the legend I saw that I had an unofficial strike.  I then slowed down, and took extra care, using the finest needles under the microscope to not damage the patina.  There is some silvering left too.  A good find!   2.4g, 17mm.   I especially love how the face seems far more menacing than Constantine's.  Perhaps being on the receiving end of Roman occupation may have had an influence!  Wink
