Good evening all
I am a new member of the forum and would really appreciate some help in IDing a recent metal detecting find, found in the South of England.
Having done some initial research, I believe it to be a Roman siliqua of Emperor Valens minted during his reign in 364 AD - 378AD. The reverse of the coin has the mintmark "TRPS", suggesting it was minted at Trier in Germany. The reverse shows Roma seated left on cuirass.
What is bothering me is that I have not been able to find another example in which the hair of the emperor is arranged in the same manner. Could any knowledgeable people point me in the right direction? Any help is very much appreciated.
