Help ID Roman medal

(1/3) > >>

Tanit:
Hello

Does anyone have any idea about the identity of the emperor depicted on this medal or brooch. Do you think it is a medal from Roman times or from modern times.
40 mm ; 22.2 g.

Thanks for your help

Unfortunately, this is a almost certainly a modern fantasy fibula (brooch) based roughly on a mid- to late-4th century bust.

Fairly decent effort put into the fake patina compared to many cheap fantasy items.

This medal was found underground. Here is another photo taken in sunlight. We can see that the patina is not artificial. The medal was all black and was heavily cleaned. The medal is surely old. But from what time. That's the question.

Here is the photo of the reverse

I agree with Shawn that this "medal" doesn't look ancient.
