Hello,

This is the gift that got me interested in old coins.

It is about 11g and 12mm and AE I believe (not the most accurate scale/measuring tape)

Any ideas? I can try and take better pictures but these were the best I could get so far.

Thank you,

I'm also open to good research books/materials. Thanks

It's a Roman provincial coin From Alexandria, can't quite make out the legend, however I think it might be Macrinus.

Also if you check out the Books, downloads and websites section you will find lots of information on ancient coins.

This is a similar reverse, but not sure about the portrait.

Pretty sure above the portrait is KΛAYΔIOC, so Claudius II Gothicus. Reverse is Elpis, Year 2 (B) so 269 AD
