Æ 2; 23mm/4.4gm, struck ca. 378-383 AD.
Con/ several strike cracks, otherwise aVF; choice glossy brown patina
Obv/ DN THEODOSIVS PF AVG; Helmeted (with pearl diadem), draped and cuirassed bust right, holding spear and shield.
Rev/ GLORIA ROMANORVM; Emperor standing left, head right, on galley, raising right hand, Victory seated at helm. Wreath in left field.
Mint/ Uncertain; exergue off flan; stylistically from the reverse details our best guess is Antioch
Ref/ RIC Vol 9 Theodosius var.
Sellers Note/ For those of you who like such things, the obverse legend is a bit quirky; note how the celator created the letters on the left side small but when he came to right side, he saw that he more room and made them much larger. Odd, huh? :-)
