    Please help with this silver Roman coin's ID. Possibly Septimius Severus, but found nothing that looks like it. IMG_3119.JPG IMG_3125.JPG IMG_3128.JPG IMG_3129.JPG IMG_3119.JPG IMG_3125.JPG IMG_3128.JPG IMG_3129.JPG

    It's far too thick to be a denarius. Portrait could be Marcus Aurelius, Lucius Verus, Commodus, Septimius Severus. You might do an acsearchinfo search using "Zeus Nikephoros" as a term.

    It doesn't look official. A bronze "limes" denarius (?) imitating Roma seated holding Victory. The COS in the left reverse field might narrow down the coin it's imitating.

    Limes denarius imitating a type of Marcus Aurelius?

    Although your coin does in fact look more like bare-breasted Jupiter.

    OP - Do you have a macro/micro filter on your phone / camera you could use?

    I'm with Bing - I think this is a provincial. That CO[L] on the reverse makes me think so, and the dumpy flan. I also think it looks more like Septimius Severus, but Provincial portraits can be tricky, so I've come to find.
