Thanks for the I.Ds, Its my first Roman and i wasn't expecting to find one on the beach. I can't make out what is on the rear of the coin if anyone knows.
I take it that is not worth much so i would like to clean it up, can anyone tell me what is the best way/substance to use to get rid of the green?

Nothing much you can do to improve the condition though.
