    Hello everyone,

    Would appreciate any help in identifying this Roman coin. I believe it is Geta, but couldn't get any further than that.

    Many thanks!

    First hint : on the observe you can read RICVS
    2nd hint : on the reverse you can read COMES

    Not Geta -- see the radiate crown? That indicates it's an antoninianus, a denomination introduced in AD 215, after Geta's death.

    This youthful figure is probably Tetricus II because the COMES AVG reverse couldn't really go with any other young ruler.
