Is it possible that this coin is gold?

It's heavy like gold and of gold color although it could be brass but I don't know if they used brass in those days.
Does anyone recognize it?

    Nope, it's most likely brass. It's most likely a roman dupondius, which were brass.

    Antoninus Pius Dupondius. It is brass and has been cleaned.

    All glory is fleeting.

    Indeed bronze. The aureus has a specific look.
