"Guess the emperor", a little numismatic game

A few days ago @AncientNumis came up with the idea for this game, so I decided to make my own version 😄

First, you just have to guess the emperor by recognizing their facial characteristics:

Now, to make it a bit more difficult, you'll have to guess the emperor from looking at just the reverse if the coin (should be possible 🤔 If not, just put a guess). And watch out: there's a empress too:

Good luck everyone 😁 I'd make a harder version of this, but I just don't have that many coins 😔

Here are my guesses:

1. Absolutely idea who this could be (Maybe Septimius Severus?)

2. Severus Alexander

3. Philip the Arab

4. Valerian

 

1. Julia Domna

2. Septimius Severus

3. Gallienus 

4. Antoninus Pius

Thats a strong guess, nearly everything correct 😮! The first one is an early Septimius, the style looks similar to Albinus:

The only one you got wrong is number 4, first pic.
