Need help identifying Ancient Roman coin


Recommended Posts

It's a really really poor imitation of a Syracusan decadrachm. Sorry, but the idea of having `found' that in the ruins of an old roman outpost somewhere in the Egyptian desert is about as far fetched as a bucket of s*it from China. If you bought it you have been suckered big time.

The story accompanying has zero credibility. `I found it lying on the floor of the factory that produced it' or `I was sold this as being genuine by a street seller in Luxor when on my cruise of the NIle' would have been much closer to reality. A crude base metal cast copy of an iconic silver coin made to fool the ignorant into believing they are buying a piece of history `psst......... cheap to you kind sir'.
