Hello again all.
I'd be grateful if you could take a look at these two.
Probus on the left? Does anyone know where it would have been struck? I have no information for the coin on the right.
Thank you.

Again Erafjel I thank you very much.
It's odd how many of my Roman coins originated in Lyon!

Lugdunum was a major mint during the late 3rd century, so chances are good you will find coins from there. In particular many of the Roman coins that reached Britain were minted in Lyons.
