    Hi all, I bought one of those big lots of 40 or so late Roman coins some time ago and this coin came with it. I was satisfied with labeling it as Constantine Dynasty and now I’m not confident in my ID. I have a feeling it could be Gratian but since I’m not well versed in late Roman coinage I’ll ask for help from you all once again.

    Thanks for the help, I had a feeling it was Gratian.
