    Hey guys / gals. I have what I "think" is a semis of Augustus with colonists plowing the field with oxen. However, I'm not sure if that's is Augustus or someone else. Any help would be appreciated, thanks! IMG_20191210_110859908-ccfopt.jpg IMG_20191210_110826054-ccfopt.jpg

    @Ocatarinetabellatchitchix - Sorry about that. I don't have my scale handy, but the size is 16mm. I looked at those and they look similar, but I can't find a match to the bust / reverse.

    At that diameter and thickness -- and without any letters in front of the ruler's face on the obverse, too, I'd think of provincials, such as these coins of Augustus of Philippi in Macedonia:

    The type was made by Mark Antony, Augustus, Tiberius, and Drusus - I would say Augustus is most likely.

    You might want to consider the colony of Parium, Augustus. The oxen plowing furrows is a common motif for coins issued for the founding of a Latin Colonia in an otherwise foreign environment.
