    Continuning on this RR AE theme, just picked up this Uncia around when
    Hannibal was making his way towards Rome.

    Anonymous Roman Republic, 217-215 BC
    AE Uncia, Rome mint
    Obverse:
    Helmeted head of Roma left, one pellet behind.
    Reverse: ROMA above prow right, one pellet below.
    References: Crawford 38/6
    Size: 25mm, 14.53g

    It looks much better and clearer in hand... I'd like to retake the photo in natural light, but alas it has been cloudy and raining here the past 10 days.
