    Here, I don't even know what I'm looking at. I'm seeing some kind of a bust facing right on the obverse, but that's it.

    Looks like some kind of Roman provincial bronze of possibly the 3rd century AD.

    I'm pretty sure it's most likely to be a small nummus from the 5th of late 4th century. Valentinian II, Honorius, Arcadius or close... Some figure (Victory?) standing on reverse if you rotate your last pic 90° clockwise.

    I didn't even see the size till now, the pic grabbed my attention :cat: you definitely got the bust style. With the 90 degrees on rev I think you got it looks like I see a wing directly under the inscription.

    Thank you, all, the bust does look 300-450-ish.
    I think I'm also seeing some letters on the reverse: IRAV or something.
    Zoomed out and rotated:

    Looks like it could be a late fallen horseman from Constantinople.
