I can't see the MM its too faded
AE2 is shorthand for a late Roman bronze measuring 21-25 mm.
17 and under is AE4.
Here are more of them on Vcoins.
Here's my little scraper I got in a group lot to clean for around fifty cents.
A few hundred surviving examples doesn't mean scarce, or maybe I missed something
Here's my 40 bucks example for comparison :
Arcadius, AE4 - Heraclea mint, 1st officina, c. AD 383
DN ARCADIVS PF AVG. Diademed, draped and cuirassed bust right
VOT / V within wreath, SMHA at exergue
1.27g, 14mm, 12h
Ref : RIC IX # 18b, LRBC II # 1964
RI Arcadius AE2 383-408 CE Emp stdg Standard and Globe
With his brother, Honorius...
RI Honorius 393-343 AE3 15mm Arcadius and Honorius Stdg
that much, but looking). I would like to pair one with that Arcadius
Arcadius, AE 2 - Alexandria mint, 3rd officina

ill sell it to you lets talk on the selling forum if your interested
I think you may have misunderstood his post. He's looking for a Honorius AE2, not Arcadius and your Arcadius is not an AE2 but a smaller AE4.
I just realized that the AE2 sample was a Honorius so here are both sides and an AE2 friend for support.
