Well, I don't necessarily "collect" them. I just bought 3 uncleaned ancient Roman coins from e-bay. This means what it says - they were dug up, roughly sorted out for the gold and silver ones, and then shipped out to buyers like me. 1 of them looks like a slug - a lot of dirt and no features. Another one is coming along - on the back I see a circle with a cross going through it. But the third one is coming out real nice. The reason I made this thread is to maybe shed some light on who the ruler was and perhaps get somewhat of an ID on the coin. Here's a few pics of the nice-looking coin. I have given it a few more cleans since the following picture. I'll keep updating it if there is interest in this thread.
