No not Nero !
He is positively "svelte" compared to this dupondius.
Normally I don't like to duplicate coins unless I am upgrading (exception Caligula ..... never can have too many)
But this "baby" measures 29.5-30mm and tips the scale at 18.33 grams !!
Considering the wear and corrosion "she" had to be over 19 grams back in her prime.

It is a common type and I own an VF/XF

But I was smitten !
IN GOD WE TRVST ....... all others pay cash !

COGITO ERGO SPVD
I think ...... therefore I yam

Excesses being associated with Caligula? Hmph.

Nice coin by the way!
