    Here's a follow-up of this thread by @Finn235 : my large Valerian and small Trajan - 11 mm, so a monster compared to the diminutive silver Greeklets, but still. I'm sure you can top me, especially in the large sector. I believe there are third century bronze Roman Provincial coins measuring 45 mm instead of my meagre 35.
