A modern 'fantasy coin' of Roman emperor Pescennius Niger on obverse, and a Greek style tetradrachm on the reverse, possibly of Miletos or Babylon. Coins of Pescennius Niger are very rare in the UK. This coin has a very thick flan, and the metal is of unusual colour and quality, although it is likely to be a kind of copper alloy.
