Just picked up this coin for my hippocamp collection, however, the legend on the obverse isn't clear to me. I think I see "...VR SE D ANTONLY," but not being a solid Roman collector I'm hoping someone more versed with these issues might be able to help.

Thanks, Curtis! It's apparent that my Roman legend interpretation skills are sorely lacking...need to remember to stick with the Greeks. :D
