    Looks like it's supposed to be Tetricus II or Claudius II.

    Looks to probably be an imitation. Anyone notice the “VAG” that’s supposed to be “AVG”? If it’s Tetricus II it would be as caesar if it was official.

    ...or maybe it does say “CAE..” hard to tell.

    The pointed chin suggests a bearded Tetricus I as VAG. Definitely barbarous!

    Fun new barbarous ancient! Pretty sure @dougsmit has that identification dead to rights.
    I LOVE Barbarians and the coins they left us:

    (Ironically, the song is about Vikings and not barbarians)
