I initially struggled to identify this (I'm a newby to Romans) because of the odd letter spacing on the obverse. Is this normal? I believe this to be a bronze denarius Aurelian Victory of Augustus, but I have no clue about the specific variant.

The last of it's kind (Denarius)- As debasement continued, this coin was replaced by the Antoninianus.

Very nice! I've never owned an Aurelian denarius.

Looks like it might come out even nicer with a bit of cleaning. Nice tall 'smurf hat' on the captive too - I don't think I've seen a taller phrygian cap than that.
