For Roman Imperial coins, that skill is not terribly difficult until around the tetrarchal period and beyond when the portraits become increasingly generic. Roman Provincial portraiture though. . . It's a different beast. There are SIX choices per coin. If you don't see six choices on your screen be sure to scroll or swipe to see all of them! All coin images used in the quiz are courtesy of Classical Numismatic Group. Cover coin is from the TIF collection; Commodus / Three Graces, Marcianopolis.
