    I can spot "Nerva", but the face looks a little too young!

    Looks like Trajan to me?

    The name Nerva appears on coins of Trajan. Remember that Nerva adopted Trajan.

    I thought so too, but it doesn't match the typical Trajan profile... nor Nerva's aquiline nose

    I think I'm reading on the Obverse...
    IMP CEAS NERVA T..........ERM

    Reverse looks like Victory and I think I can see COS .....
    Hope this helps..Probably around a Trajan RIC 58 maybe, a good starting point at least...
