I like the cute little portraits on these. Arcadius was only 5 years old when he was raised to the rank of Augustus by his father, Theodosius I.
Very nice coin. Mine was just a chunk of dirt. I wish I cold have done a better job. Thanks for the feedback.
Well, it certainly looks a lot better than a chunk of dirt now! Were the scrapes underneath the dirt, or were those cleaning oopsies?
Cleaning oppsies. This was one of my earliest and took a long time to figure out. I think I learned some from this one.
@ancient coin hunter Being so tiny makes them more difficult to clean. Mine was very encrusted. Nice job on yours.
Mine is the same as @Severus Alexander's example
