Republican Coin - 116 to 115 BC

Another field and another very lucky find. I got the low battery signal so started back to the car. The battery gave a last squeak. I dug the spot and out came a Republican coin 116/115 BC, Monyer Domitius helmeted figure of Roma.

I should think it belonged to an officer and I don't imagine he would have been happy with the loss when he found out about it and no doubt some poor soul would suffer from his anger for the next day or two. Or it could have been a lucky coin his mother gave him before he set sail for this heathen land. Whatever! He lost it, I found it and may he rest in peace now.
