Hey! I can tell what century a Roman coin is from just by looking at it! And ya know, I can even identify the likely emperorjust by his worn profile! And I know the general categories of what's written around the edges of the coins! Ican even read a good bit of what's written there! Yeah, I was once so intrigued by Roman coins that I obsessed on them and learned scads! Such coins are plentiful and pretty inexpensive in the US - the common ones, I mean. One to three dollars for an average third-to-fourth century Roman coin. These are some of the reference works I've acquired on ancient coins (Roman and others). When I was a kid, I could only dream doing such things - holding a real ancient coin in my hand and researching where it was minted and what was on it. It's a childhood dream come true. And there's the wonder of it, too... Who held this coin? How many people held it? What were their lives like? Where has the coin been all this time? What caused it to be buried - was it lost? Hidden? And on and on and on... The romance of holding an ancient coin and wondering... letting the imagination loose on it... Whew! Quite a thing! :) [The photo was taken with late afternoon sunlight across the bindings...]
