I found a roman coin in amongst a tin full of coins.

It's about 32mm across the widest part & 2-3mm deep. It has a brassy look to it.

One side has an emporer's head looking right with the following text round it

IMPCAESNERVALTRAIANOnVGGERDACPMT - then I can't read the rest.

The other side has the following text:

FORTVN - can't read the rest until EDVC

At the bottom is SC

There is a seated woman? holding something in her left hand - she is facing left.

Any clues, history etc


Thanks in advance


Compare your coin with this one:

How is yours different/similar? A picture would help greatly.
