Kind of looks a bit like a cast to me though, so I'd like to know how much it weighs and if we can see better images, including edge shots of the rim.
You should be able to attribute the coin here: http://www.wildwinds.com/coins/ric/marcus_aurelius/i.html
Still, surfaces look odd to me. Hopefully someone can shed better light on this coin. Better photos will help with that, and weight too.
Supposed to be a sestertius of Marcus Aurelius as Caesar, reference number RIC 1348Aa. See above for an example. However your coin doesn't look like a sestertius. Weight and diameter will help.
Wow thank you so much for this great information!
It dates from AD 158/9. Its obverse inscription reads AVRELIVS CAES ANTON AVG PII F and its reverse inscription reads TR POT XIII COS II S C and features Spes, advancing left, holding flower in right hand and lifting drapery of skirt with left hand.
References: RIC 1350; BMCRE 2087.
@Roman Collector has the correct attribution. Where did you manage to get this coin?
@ancient coin hunter
Thank you for more information, I feel so lost in this. Its a really awesome coin.
My husband's Father gave it to him as a gift with other old coins a long time ago. We are trying to find answers about some of these coins and this one was very challenging.
I happened to stumble across this site.
I am still going to get a weight on it soon.
Thank you all so much!!!
