Just finished attributing these two Pick Ups. The first was being offered as Theodosius II, however, I found it to be the coin below - a Rare one indeed. Found no examples on Vcoins.

Theodosius I. AE3. 378-383 AD.
Obv. DN THEODO-SIVS PF AVG, rosette-diademed, draped, cuirassed bust right
Rev: CONCOR-DIA AVGGG, Constantinopolis, helmeted, seated facing, head right, right leg bare, holding globe and spear whose lower part is hidden by robe; upright palm branch in left field; I in lower right field; CONSA in ex.

RIC IX Constantinople 58. Rare (R3).





Theodosius I, AE2, 392-395
Obv. DN THEODO-SIVS PF AVG, Pearl-diademed, draped, cuirassed bust right
Rev. GLORIA-ROMANORVM, Emperor standing facing, head right, globe in left hand, standard in right. Mintmark SMNA.

Looking closely at the complex listings in RIC IX, I believe the Theodosius is RIC 57(e). On RIC 58, there is no prow beneath the foot of Constantinopolis. Officina A is unattested with branch and HN monogram. However, late Roman bronzes tend to be underrepresented in the collections surveyed for RIC.

Thanks everyone, special thanks to Kushanshah for the lesson. I must admit, I don't student RIC as closely as I should.
