It's a Constantinian era "two victories" coin. It will probably hard to figure out who or where it was minted. It has a little palm front there between the victories, they may help to narrow it down a tad bit, not all of them have that.
Constantius II AE Two Victories Wreath Palm &Branch Authentic Ancient Roman Coin?
Yes, you got it. May be Constans instead of Constantius II? It will very hard to tell unless you can make out some of the legend on the obverse.
Plus, the coin in the link is from Siscia mint. I cannot see any mint in the reverse to tell on your coin.
Thank chrs! The seller who sold it to me said Augustus- I was like "say what?" I didn't think it was Augustus but I didn't care at the time since it was practically free.
No problem. Definitely not THE Augustus (Octavian) but it is probably Constans or Constantius II as Augustus. That is confusing to people sometimes.
Oh good so the seller didn't completely lie. Good. I am already getting tired of those lying sellers lately after last month. I should take up scrapbooking instead.
it's a Roman coin.. that's what you bought and that's what you got.
