My guess is that this is the type:
Valentinian I, AE3 Nummus, Siscia, A.D. 364 - A.D. 367
Obverse: D N VALENTINI-ANVS P F AVG: Bust of Valentinian I, pearl-diademed, draped and cuirassed, right
Reverse: SECVRITAS-REIPVBLICAE: Victory advancing left, holding wreath and palm.
Mint mark: A (1st officinae) SISC
Reference: RIC IX 7a Siscia
Hard to say if it’s Valentinian or Valens though.
The letters on either side of Victory are "field marks" and were likely used for mint control--designating a particular run of a particular coin type.
This coin might be a bit closer to your type since it has similar field marks.
A.D. 367- 375
D N VALENS P F AVG; pearl-diademed, draped and cuirassed bust.
SECVRITAS REIPVBLICAE; Victory advancing left, holding wreath and palm.
In ex. ASISCE
RIC IX Siscia 15b, type xxxiii
