Roman

Ancient roman coins span the 3rd century BC until the 5th century AD. Unlike ancient greek coins which feature a wide range of symbols peculiar to a particular city in Ancient Greece, ancient roman coins commonly feature a portrait of an individual (e.g. the emperor) on the obverse. Some of the most wonderfully detailed portraits of emperors can be found on an ancient roman coin.
