The archaeological metal objects are very valuable testimonies of the cultural and historical heritage of humanity. The materials and techniques used for their production have evolved over time. The physicochemical characterizations of these materials can develop there knowledge. According to the techniques used on these objects we can date as we can go back to their elemental composition and manufacturing processes. In this communication we present a study of a batch containing twenty (20) coins struck in different periods of the Roman Empire. These coins come from reserves of Volubilis Archaeological Site and have been characterised by Scanning Electron Microscope associated with Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy at the National Centre for Scientific and Technical Research of Rabat, Morocco. The data obtained are processed mathematically through multivariable statistical treatments. The results will then be correlated to the archaeological and historical data.
