Good eye, Mr. Boyd! That coin is buried in the shadows. If anyone can identify it, it's you. Will try to get a better screen grab but can't promise anything.

WOW. Nice going. Do you have one of these? I'll have to keep my eye out for this poster the next time I watch that episode...

On a side note: Someone was selling Roman coins at a street market here recently but I passed on them because they seemed over-priced. I might be able to get something better in Italy this summer. You've inspired me, WilliamBoyd!
