I picked up a coin of one of the last Pagan Emperors (he spilled enough Christian blood to prove so). It's fully silvered and not bad at all for the price I paid.

Maximinus II. AE Follis. 310-313 AD. IMP MAXIMINVS PF AVG, laureate, draped bust right, seen from the back / GENIO-POP ROM, Genius standing left, tower on head, naked except for chlamys over left shoulder, holding patera and cornucopiae. T-F across fields. Mintmark PTR. RIC VI Trier 844a, rated scarce.

Accurately centered, fully struck up fully silvered, and almost no sign of wear.
An excellent example.

Nice pick up! I didn't know that Western mints minted for Maximinus II so late. Certainly not a portrait type normally seen for this emperor!
New Sale! Inexpensive classic Greek silver, over 2,400 years old!

Your legend is IMP MAXIMINVS AVG and the bust is laureate and cuirassed. It is RIC VI Trier 851a
