I purchased this coin on an Ebay auction and it came with a tag saying "France 1132-1196 Denarus Hughes 9.45 694". It weighs 0.5g and is approx. 17mm in diameter. Any identification help would be greatly appreciated. If possible, directions to a relevant catalogue or catalogue # would be most appreciated.

It is a French feudal denier from the County of Rodez, minted under Hugh/Hugues II 1154-1210 (dates uncertain, but according to Duplessy*).

Inscriptions read RODES CIVI / VGO COMES

Catalogue numbers: Duplessy* 1171, Poey d'Avant** 3880

* Duplessy: Les Monnaies Françaises Féodales
** Poey d'Avant: Monnaies Féodales de France, Vol. II (available on Google Books)
