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 got this from a Frank Robinson lot for $6.23.
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
@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.
