    Found this one while cleaning a new dirty lot i purchased but I can't seem to decipher the Minting. It appears to be either silver or silvered. Not 100% yet as I have finished cleaning it. I tried looking through WildWinds but was unable to locate one like this.

    Obv is Constantius Nob G

    Nice campgate.

    I'm not the one you want to ask about mintmarks, however.

    Its weird, at one angle it looks like Delta SIS something and at another ASIS something but not sure if Siscia is correct. Ill have to keep looking.

    Constantius II as Caesar. FL IVL CONSTANTIVS NOB C. Siscia mint... looks to be Delta SIS (then maybe a dot or something... or it’s just an encrustation... but the spacing looks like there may be something following)

    Here's page 252 in RIC vii. It's a double crescent mint mark. Coins for Constantius are listed with the delta and epsilon officina marks.

    However, I am curious if that was intended to be a "double crescent" or whether it represents a number in the Siscian language, such as was used in these FEL TEMP issues of Siscia issued a few decades later:

    Constantius II, AD 337-361.
    Roman Æ 3 (1/4 maiorina?), 2.36 g, 18.7 mm, 11 h.
    Siscia, AD 348-49, fifth officina.
    Obv: D N CONSTAN-TIVS P F AVG, pearl-diademed, draped and cuirassed bust, right.
    Rev: FEL TEMP REPARATIO, Phoenix, nimbate, standing right on mound of rocks; ЄSIS(Siscian symbol 5) in exergue.
