    It's supposed to say VABALATHVS V C R IMP D R over the portrait of Vabalathus (the laureate bust) and it says IMP C AVRELIANVS AVG on both sides. Here's my non-error version:

    Vabalathus and Aurelian antoninianus.jpg
    Vabalathus, AD 270-272 and Aurelian, AD 270-275.
    Roman billon antoninianus, 3.58 gm, 20.4 mm, 5 h.
    Antioch, late AD 270-spring 272.
    Obv: VABALATHVS V C R IMP D R, laureate, draped and cuirassed bust of Vabalathus, right.
    Rev: IMP C AVRELIANVS AVG, radiate and cuirassed bust of Aurelian right; officina mark Є below.
    Refs: RIC 381; CBN 1248; Cohen 1; MIR 353; RCV 11718.
