    Obverse: diademed draped bust of Arcadius right.
    Reverse: Victory right, crowning Arcadius with wreath.

    Struck at Antioch in Turkey. Ex-David Connors, May 2020.

    A common but pleasing late Roman coin with attractive earthen patina.

    I always liked this reverse with its willowy figures. Here is my Arcadius in this hot morning's sun (16 mm, 4.06 gr., reddish patina). My father-in-law bought it in 1971.

    And his sad brother's matching coin:

    Here is a rather poorly preserved Arcadius Æ2 with an interesting twist (click the picture for the story).
