its about 14mm
1.65gm

it was heavily corroded needed to be cleaned to even come close to Iding it

obverse is bust right

reverse appears to be victory seated left? ( or standing? cant tell)

i believe

it could be one of several coins
someone told me it is augustus but the bust doesnt look like it

I am guessing M. Porcius Cato\

or maybe Cato Uticensis. 47-46 b.c.

or L. CALPURNIUS PISO FRUGI.

I can't get enough details from that photo. Sorry. I do see the sitting angel, so you may have it.
