    I am stumped! I am trying to identify this coin, and have narrowed it down to the following three possibilities.

    However this is as far as I can go. As you can tell, there is not a lot of identifying characteristics to go on (at least to me). I am hoping someone here would be able to help me finalize this! Thank you!

    Gratian RIC IX Siscia 15c, type x. Valens RIC IX Siscia 15b, type x


    Valentinian I RIC IX Siscia 15a, type x-b

    The reverse is clearly the goddess Victoria. From the pictures, I can’t read the mintmark. For the obverse, Gratian is possible, Valentinian too, but it could also be Constans,,Constantius II or maybe Arcadius....with the coin in hand you are certainly the best judge !

    Look at the obverse inscription. It should be either:
    right side - left side
    D N VALEN - S P F AVG - Valens, or
    D N VALENTI - ANVS P F AVG - Valentinian, or
    D N GRATIA - NVS P F AVG - Gratian​
