Bought this small bronze awhile back
Thought it would be easy enough to ID
Must be Augustus
Maybe Tiberius ?
Altho the portrait really resembles those attributed to Mssr Gaius Sosius

Stumped !

20-1mm 7.10 grams



The resemblance to Sosius seems undeniable
But unattributable !

You know I am tempted to say the words below COL are not words but a figure as they seem too much like a figures relief. So perhaps the orientation is like I post below and this is like a Macedon with two statues or even an altar or gate etc.
