    Yes, RIC X, 60. I'm not immediately certain if the officina is A or Δ. RIC describes the bust type as "draped and cuirassed", "pearl-diademed" (D3).

    Nice coin! I love seeing later empire coins posted as they don’t get the love they deserve. Here’s a similar Arcadius with less detail but a larger flan. CONSA
    RIC IX 60 - Constantinople

    Arcadius Trier Siliqua for ID.jpg
    Here's a mediocre pic of my Arcadius Trier siliqua, possibly issued by Eugenius.

    I have very few LRBS, and the ones I do are 99% unphotographed.

    Oh yeah, didn't they do the neat 3/4 armored bust AE3's? I have one or two of those.
