If you believe in "good omens", this might well be a hint that this will be an exceptional season.  This denarius is scarce-to-rare and in demand as a "dynastic piece", portraying all three of the Flavians.  Vespasian issued it and the two figures seated on curule chairs on the reverse are Titus and Domitian.  This piece, from the mint at Rome (* see below), dates to relatively early in Vespasian's rule, c. 69-70.

The legends are "almost" clear to read now, if you know what you're looking for.  I trust that if you cook this one, the legends will become much more readable in general. The obverse - portrait of Vespasian - is: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG / the reverse, with the seated Caesars is: TITVS ET DOMITIAN CAESARES PRIN IVEN* - PrincipiI Iuventutis: "The Princes of Youth" (which was an official and titled position, it can also be read as "The young princes" which is just a description - Latin syntax does not depend on the order of words in a sentence so occasionally interpretation of quotes and inscriptions can be a bit ambiguous and when defining the original intent may be open to opinion.

References:
RIC vol II, i (new edition), Vespasian 6 (var - see note *) "rare", (25 in the old edition of vol II) ; RSC (Vespasian) 541b; SRCV 2403. 

* Something else which might be a bit ambiguous is the attribution to Rome.  The piece quoted by RIC has a reverse legend which ends in "..IV" rather than "...IVEN".  In fact, RIC II, i, does not quote the IVEN ending at all except in the footnotes. The IVEN ending, evidently, is associated with the mint at Lyon (Lugdunum) but is quoted only from a plated piece.  I need to check with the "Not In RIC" folks and see if this is a typo, or whether this is a significant, unpublished rarity.

Mark

PS - I had never looked at the "Not in RIC" site before and it turns out to be only for vols VII & VIII - I might run this one past Curtis Clay, although looking at the listings in the "old" RIC II I see the IVEN variety listed, so it may only be a typo or simple omission in the new RIC.

4thC House of Constantine bronze sent for ID

This piece is a posthumous commemorative of the "Empress" Theodora, 2nd wife of Constantius I.  These were struck as part of the continuation of the large emission of Centenionales dating to the early period after the death of Constantine - 337-340 - by the 3 new Augusti:  Constantine II, Constans and Constantius II.  The coins in Theodora's honor were struck only at Trier, Rome and Constantinople and I believe the legend on the reverse - PIETAS ROMANA - was never used on the coins of any other member of the Imperial families, at least not in the"Æ" coinage.

Shewolf & Twins reverse which is typically found on the VRBS ROMA, City of Rome commemorative, reduced-module folles introduced around 330 AD

Sent to Mark for confirmation of ID

There's not all that much unusual about your VRBS ROMA city commemorative with the she-wolf and twins reverse, except that what's left of it has a nice, glossy patina.  It's from the mint at Trier: "TRP" in the exergue.  To tell whether this is part of the earlier or later runs of these, given the chipped edges, I'd need to have it in-hand (if I could tell at all) to try to see by the size and weight whether it's consistent with the module from the beginning of the series c. 330-333, from the middle of the series - 333-335 - or from the very end, c. 336-7 (by which time they had become considerably smaller).  Aside from that, there's nothing particularly unusual about it - it's part of the enormous combined emissions of billon Centenionales. (as the denomination is now being named by David Sear, whose conventions I tend to follow.) This huge combined issue began at the time of the dedication of Constantinople and ran until the death of Constantine in 337.  These were contemporaneous - in fact were part of the same overall series - as the very commonly encountered GLORIA EXERCITVS - soldiers flanking 1 or 2 standards types in the name of Constantine I and all the various Caesars, as well as the CONSTANTINOPOLIS city commemoratives.

Interesting group of rough 1stC Roman big Sestertius bronzes found in the corner of a new field by At Mike - could be a potential hoaird there ?? A couple have some detail so I will send them off to mark Lehman for an ID.

What you have likely found is a "lost purse", or a very small buried hoard.  Sestertii were one of the real "workhorse" denominations in circulation during the years the Romans were most active in Britain.  You find a lot of denarii (relatively speaking) because that is the sort of denomination which would be likely to be squirrelled-away as savings - a "store of value" for the average man who probably never saw a piece of gold change hands in his life.  It was the sestertii, dupondii & asses which really got the day-to-day work done.  I'm not all that sure what exactly is in ciculation in GB these days, 1967 having been the last time I visited, but in the US, I'd compare the larger Æ coins to the $20, $10 & $5 bills - it's nearly impossible to draw comparisons between actual buying-power value, of course, since so many items in the "market basket" were vastly more or less expensive than today, but the 5, 10 & 20 make for the same levels of multiples - an as being half a dupondius and a quarter of a sestertius, and the sestertius, in turn, being a quarter of the denarius (so it doesn't quite hold up all the way through) but the denarius would be more on the order of a $100 bill - a day's pay for a soldier or tradesman.  Maybe you'd take one with you if you were buying something major, but for day to day transactions, it was the large Æ's changing hands - buying a meal, modest lodging for the night, a mug of wine, etc, those sorts of things would be likely to be paid-for and priced in the Æ range. 

So this find of 8 sestertii together represented a little bit of wealth - a couple hundred dollars,say - but not a massive sum.  The group could have been lost as a purse by a normally solvent person and would have been missed, but would not, most likely, have been a total disaster.  Or perhaps a clumsy "cutpurse" might have stashed his most recent acquisition and never returned to find it, having been caught on a subsequent foray into the marketplace...

We can make up scenarios for this sort of sum of money fairly easily, since it is a comprehensible sum in comprehensible units the cognate of which we probably have in our own wallets (or would have if not quite so much of our commerce were conducted with plastic).

In my opinion, the 1st example looks as though it might be a youthful portrait of Commodus, son of Marcus Aurelius and his successor -
This is a youthful portrait of Commodus:  http://www.stoa.org/gallery/album95/ML_01_Commodus_Minerva_sest
He grew a beard later on, but he was only a teen as seen here.

While it might also be a younger portrait of Hadrian - before he cultivated his beard -
http://www.stoa.org/gallery/album92/13_Hadrian_Sest_Felicitas 
(Unfortunately I don't have a higher-quality example  of portrait for Hadrian in Æ in this early, nearly beardless era)

 the hair on your piece appears to be treated in the very curly style seen in M. Aurelius' and Commodus' portraits - see below for a Caesar-era M. Aurelius sestertius -
http://www.stoa.org/gallery/album94/M_Aurel_Caes_Virtvs_Sest1 but the profile doesn't seem to match

Your 2nd piece is, well, a good bit less easy to try to match - there is a portrait there - there seems not to be any beard (which pretty much rules out Hadrian, Antoninus Pius and M. Aurelius as Augusti) the head doesn't have the "bowling-ball" aspect of Trajan's portraits.  I don't think it's one of the pre-adoptives (Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Galba or Vitellius - definitely not a Flavian) So I guess we have pretty much the same pool of possibilities to draw from.  A very early Hadrian or M. Aurelius - although both were almost never shown completely beardless - or a young Commodus.

That's about the best I can do, given the small amount of info available - these pieces were likely minted sometime in the 2nd century.  The relatively stable fiscal  and political situation in the 2nd century also fits for a "working" purseful of sestertii.  They circulated long enough to often be worn almost smooth in this era, meaning there was never a good reason for them to be hoarded on any widespread basis.
