    To my very untrained eye, I am thinking the obverse is perhaps Marcus Aurelius. Am I close, or way off? Thinking it may be this: http://www.wildwinds.com/coins/sear5/s4977.html

    As always, any help would be great for this novice collector!

    Here's your coin. Kind of a neat Roma type, with "ROM" in the exergue. Nice portrait too.

    It just takes a little time and some practice along with a little reading and you will be answering these questions in no time.

    Need to find an "Ancient Coins for Dummies" type of book! The time span is so massive, it's really hard to find a place to even start. Definitely interested in it though.

    Nice coin. Don't worry, soon you'll be identifying them with the best of them. Just takes a bit of a practiced eye.
