Can't make out the photos too well, but it does appear roman. I can see the columns you're talking about. Did you get it from a dealer, or did you find it?

To change your avatar, simply go into the control panel, which is located on the upper left of the screen. Then, look under "PROFILE". You'll be able to change your avatar and customize your information there.

I don't think they are pillars  I think it is an M

Similar to:

Justinian follis

BYZANTINE, Justinian I, 527-65 AD, bronze follis, SB-207, bust facing / M, KYZ, year XXIIII, A, couple of minor pits, otherwise nice aXF $63.00 sold 

    Codified Roman law, built the Hagia Sophia, reconquered most of the old Roman empire.  Married Theodora, a notorious sex worker who became a notorious religious fanatic.  The "M" is Greek for 40 (nummiae), the value of the coin.

Wow, that's a great match, Ron! Lemme tell ya, if I ever bump someone off, you'd be the detective I DON'T want to see!!! Lol.

Me: "I couldn't have killed that guy, I was at a movie from 1 to 3:00"

You: "Are you precise on those times?"

Me: "Even better, 110%"

You: "What flick?"

Me: "Titantic"

You: "Sir, Titanic clocks in at 2.5 hours, plus previews, I'm going to have to place you under arrest"
