Joe, pretty sure I see "II" at the end of the obverse legend. So hard to tell form photos though.

Fake Coins and Notorious Fake Sellers / Re: Is authentic this solidus?

Hi. It's a coin worthing easily over 1000 euros. Do your homework; check the Fake Coins Report, analyse genuine examples (in this case the weight is OK but Honorius has so many different obverse style...), ask the seller where the coin comes from- if it's from his grandfather's collection, from an old collection, if he dig it himself...run away ! And by the way, I've never seen a trusted or serious seller posting pictures of coins between fingers...If you have only one doubt...RUN AWAY !

It seems likely that people from the same area tended to settle close to each other here in the US.

Welcome to Forum!

I would also suggest a read through the Numiswiki on uncleaned coins here: https://www.forumancientcoins.com/numiswiki/view.asp?key=Uncleaned%20Ancient%20Coins

Roman rule in Britain effectively ended in 410 CE, so generally speaking, any roman coin from about 43 CE to around 410 CE could feasibly have circulated in Rome after being freshly minted.  In reality, earlier and later coins could also have circulated there unofficially or as part of old coinage still in circulation with the populace in 43.  Practically speaking though, fiat coinage such as bronzes dated after 410 would have been an exception in Britain after 410. 

I would also suggest to you that there are 4 centuries of rich Roman numismatic history associated with Britain - you may want to give this some thought and select a particular theme, emperor, period, denomination or dynasty to give your collection some focus and bound things.  Something that speaks to you.  You could very quickly end up all over the place and feel a bit rudderless if you have no specific focus.

Hope that helps!

If you are considering purchasing this coin please know that it is usually not possible to authenticate an ancient coin from a photograph. If you are not confident that either the coin is genuine, or the dealer is reputable with expertise and a guarantee, do not buy. In short, either know the coin or know the seller.
