    Good afternoon,
    Saw this coin for sale, quite worn Vot V type.
    The seller said it's a Constantius II (and quite adamant) but I can't find a match.
    First, all Constantius II Vot V have a different reverses (afaik) and this reverse type suits for other rulers.
    What strikes me is the cross sign over VOT, I haven't found this design of the wreath anywhere except for Valens siliqua
    Antioch
    RIC IX 33b2
    but that looks like a real cross.
    I am not convinced that on this coin that is a Christian symbol but nevertheless puzzles me.

    here's an example for Jovian from Alexandria, though your mintmark looks different, but maybe it is ALEB, with LE weak.
