    Please feel free to comment. They did not cost much, a lunch for 2 at McDonalds. Maybe Arby

    I would pick coins over McDonald's any day!
    Very nice additions.. those are quality coins that would fit in any collection.

    I will add a my own Licinius from Heraclea.. which is probably one of the weirdest coins I own. This portrait featuring the fisheye, fish mouth and crazy beard is so ugly that I find it sort of spectacular. But you can't account for taste...

    I've got a fun fish-face as well. Heraclea must have loved their piscis.
    I got this from a Frank Robinson lot for $6.23.

    Your photography skills are growing rapidly.
    Re, your Elagabalus: "Bronze AE" is redundant, since AE means bronze. The coin looks like a denarius. If it is bronze, then it is what is usually called a "limes denarius", a sort of emergency issue used for trade around the border areas of the empire.

    Looks like provincial bronze of Markianopolis, approx 18mm. Not sure if these are considered denarii though

    Great coins for the cost of a meal!

    I always enjoy seeing the obese Emperors who always ate high on the hog! Does anyone know who the most obese Emperor was & if so, did he make it to a coin that fit?

    @Mammothtooth.......Nice pick ups....Particularly like the Licinius, it has good detail. I have a soft spot for this Emperor as his was my first ever purchase of an ancient coin many Lics ago.....

    I totally missed that reverse inscription. You're right; it's not a denarius.
