Ancient Coin Identification

#1 Unread post by Rosco53 »

Hey all! Along the lines of my other post (looking for information on Ancient coins), I had purchased these coins at coin shows/Flea Markets, looking for any sort of identification help. Thanks in advance!

Welcome and glad to see you made it.
I'm not real familiar with ancients. It is usually best to post one coin per thread to avoid confusion in the help given.
What is the weight and approximate diameter if possible.

Last coin is the easiest... Thanks.
Valentinian I, 364-375AD
Reverse legend states: SECVRITAS REIPVBLICAE (security of the Republic)
That's the goddess Victory walking left, raising wreath in right hand, palm frond in left hand.

It is kind of rough, so getting the exact variety is kind of tough, but is was made in Siscia, Italy.
The coin originally looked similar to the one below:

Mhonzell-
Thank you VERY much for the identification, greatly appreciated! Thrilled that it is actually Roman and not just some more modern junker! Also appreciate the link to the other forum, will definitely look into it!
