Okay, this time around is aimed primarily at beginners, but I'll add a bonus question at the end worth a whopping 1GG, so all you Latin speaking German professors leave the ID, but feel free to answer bonus question.








Name the man 2GG


Bonus question. Why is this coin almost 90% silver?

Im going with Trajan, his nose matches my Trajan Denarius, on top of that the 90% silver matches mine, his coins were among the last of full silver content. I was told mine is 90%-100% as well based on the 117 AD mint period.

My vote is for:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Gordian III (IMP GORDIANVS PIVS FEL AVG) with Hercules (VIRTVTI AVGVSTI) on the reverse


Answer to bonus question: it's silver because the rising costs due to inflation.


Edit: added answer for bonus question.
Edit again: 'cause I can't leave well enough alone. Added spoiler and reverse details.

When it is your turn to send a VASSAL move, the wait is excruciating. When it's my turn, well, I've been busy.

Is that a circle in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

Winner

Gordian III


Not understanding how to combat inflation tried to combat by adding to the silver content in currency. Didn't work.

Great work MikeG
