Can't really decipher from the legend, but the style of the portrait leads to Constantius II - Reverse is FEL TEMP REPARATIO, soldier spearing fallen horseman .

Almost certainly Constantius II. If you wanted to do some homework, you could likely figure out the mint. The cool thing about these fallen horseman types is that the "barbarian" is almost always depicted as a member of whatever the biggest threat the populace would be familiar with - e.g. in western Europe, the horseman would be Germanic while in Antioch he would be Sassanian. The ε in the field will also help your search.
My Collections:
Roman Imperial
Japan Type set Tokugawa + Modern
Indo Sassanian
