Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A very worn and corroded 4th-century copper-alloy Roman nummus of a Tetrarchic emperor, probably 'GENIO POP ROM', uncertain mint (307-318 AD; Reece issue period 17). This flan is an odd teardrop shape, indicating part of the coin has broken off. However, the edge is worn and abraded, suggesting the break is very old.
