Constantine I to Gratian. Only 1 example was found from Constantine I, Decentius, and Magnus Maximus, while coins from Julian II numbered 718, coins from Constantius II numbered 340, and coins from Valens numbered 199. The coins were made from 11 different mints mostly located in Gaul. The British Museum took 25 of the best coins, and about 250 coins along with the storage jar were placed on display at the local church where they were later stolen and never recovered . On September 27, 2016 the heirs of the hoard had Spink & Son, of London, auction what remained of the hoard. Since then many dealers and auction houses have resold coins from the hoard. CNG 106 offered a nice selection of these coins that ranged in price from $180 - $600. My two coins came from a GC weekly auction slabbed and cost $119.25 (including buyers premium) for both coins . I wouldn't run a Marathon for these two coins but couldn't resist them at that price . I didn't have any coins of Valens in my collection or any coins from a known hoard, so that provided the impetus to bid on them. Both coins are the same type but the 1st one is lighter in weight and has a better looking reverse, while the 2nd coin is heavier and has a better looking portrait. Emperor Valens is best known for engineering the Battle of Adrianople, one of the worst military defeats in Roman history . Valens died in that battle along with thousands of Roman legionaries from 16 divisions fighting angry Goths led by Fritigern.
