    The portrait on obverse is strange to me. That's why I bought it but shall receive it tomorrow morning. Please try to guess. Thanks. FacesBeard.JPG

    Not sure if it is Roman or Greek. Some evidence of a beard. Could it be one of the Antonines?

    Provincial.

    Cappadocia, Caesaria.
    Marcus Aurelius or Lucius Verus.
    Mt. Argaeus reverse.
    ETΓ (or ETE... can't tell if that is a gamma or an E with the bottom indistinct), so RY 3 or 5.

    Thank you so much. I'll have better photos tomorrow, with hopefully more and more coins. Cheers..

    My immediate thought was Marcus Aurelius or Commodus.

    It's Verus. The goofy hairstyle is a dead give-away.
