    I don't think I over cleaned it. It was very worn to begin with. Perhaps someone can push me in the right direction to research this.

    Looks like it might be Arcadius?

    Thanks to you and @Mat I agree about Arcadius. But mine seems to have a mint mark starting with an S. Could it be this one:
    [​IMG]
    Arcadius AE3. 395-401 AD, Nicomedia mint.

    DN ARCADI-VS PF AVG, pearl diademed, draped, cuirassed bust right
    VIRTVS-EXERCITI, Emperor standing left, head right, holding spear and resting left hand on shield. Victory, standing beside him crowns him with a wreath which she holds in her right hand
    Mintmark SMNA

    RIC X Nicomedia 62
    Having trouble with the image.

    I have absolutely no clue. I can't tell for sure on your mintmark at all.
