Willing to bet against Nero
But who knows ......
Last time I was sure on Caligula it turned out to be a Hadrian !
Off by a hundred years !

The portrait looks a heckuva lot like Caligula
But Julio-Claudians can be tough to distinguish in this condition and without any legend to help

The countermark might point the way
Looks to have a radiate bust so I'm thinking Eastern
But Elagabalus & Julia Soaemias ?
Off by two hundred years ?
That seems improbable
31mm 15.51 grams


I can't help thinking Antonia or Agrippina
The hair tied back in a tail


Help
IN GOD WE TRVST ....... all others pay cash !
