    @Valentinian I notice that my type seems to be number 47 on your list, with a rating of "S" - does that mean scarce? Thanks.

    P.S. It seems like this portrait and reverse of this type would fit solidi more than the bronze?

    Yes, "S" means scarce. Actually, there are quite a few around, but most are in poor condition. An example with full flan and no problems, even if worn, is unusual. An example as nice as this is rare:

    Here are a couple of Honorius bronzes from my collection:

    DN HONORIVS AVG // GLORIA ROMANORVM

    SMN (Gamma) = Nicomedia (3. Offizin)
    ANT (Gamma) = Antiochia (3. Offizin)

    AD 393 - 395

    Here is an interesting unofficial imitation of a Honorius Siliqua.

    The coin was found in England, (Walcott Folkingham, Lincolnshire) and has likely been produced in the time after Honorius withdrew the Roman troops from Britain in AD 407, when central power and Roman institutions were in sharp decline in Britain.
