Roman Victorinous (268 - 270)

I found this Victorinous Usurper in a solid lump of clay. Your first instinct is to bash the lump with your spade to open it up and then common sense kicks in and you spend the next ten minutes gently chipping bits off and hoping it will be worth the effort. I am glad to say that this time it was well worth the effort.

The coin actually looks better in real life than my scanner has done justice to it, as it is really in quite good condition.
