Marcian AE4.

Flavius Marcianus Augustus (AD 392 - 27 January 457) was Byzantine Emperor from 450 to 457.

Marcian's rule marked a recovery of the Eastern Empire, which the Emperor protected from external menaces and reformed economically and financially. On the other side, the isolationistic policies of Marcian left the Western Roman Empire without help against barbarian attacks, which materialized in the Italian campaigns of Attila and in the Vandal sack of Rome (455).

He convoked the Council of Chalcedon, held in 451.

Mint: Constantinople?
Diameter: 12mm
Mass: 1,52g.
Obv: Pearl diademed, draped, cuirassed bust right
Rev: Monogram
Ref: RIC X 542; Sear 21395.

Don't be that exiting. :) This one was not found by me and my metal detector. This one is purchased before I even had a metal detector. As one can see at the patina. It's dessert patina. The original find spot is not known, but I think some middle east country.
