Authentic alloy 90% copper, 10% tin
Roma or Mars?
Mid-3rd century A.d.
Reconstruction of a very well-preserved original piece. The inscription can be ambiguously interpreted. On the one hand, some pieces of comparison with the letter of MAR or MARTIS are preserved, suggesting the Roman war God Mars. On the other hand, also the way of reading is possible with ROMA.
In any case, it is an extraordinary piece!
