    I picked up this little gem from a box of un-assorted LRBs. Looks to be an ae4 of Valentinian II. My eye was drawn to the vivid details on the reverse.

    Here's what I've got out of it so far:
    reverse: "SALVS REIPVBLICAE", mintmark: probably Alexandria or possibly Antioch
    Minted (383-392)

    Anyone else have anything similar? My attribution skills aren't great:confused:

    This is the Constantinople mint version with cross-rho. I sold it a little while back but I do not know who got it. I have been cutting down on my late Romans over the last few years. Anyone recognize it?
