Restoration and cleaning report: this Sestertius of Nero came to my attention with a green patina which showed morphological characteristics and crystallization due to repatination. Under stereoscopic magnification (100X) was mechanically removed this layer, showing an original dark-brownish patina with scattered cuprite crystals on both sides of the coin.
Completing the cleaning of the reverse, I observed the reparation of a corrosion
with epoxy material, corrosion due to a cuprite formation of cuprite place on the right side of the field. I believe that this accurate cleaning operation returned the coin to its delicate and refined definition.
